My Fulbright Grant has come to an end, and I am preparing to return to the US from Germany. This year has brought about many life changes, which I do not feel ready to place a value on. Overall it was a fantastic year; this has been a strange, productive, beautiful chapter in my life. I am sad to say farewell to my time in Germany, but I am so grateful for all of the wonderful memories and unforgettable experiences. I am grateful to my friends at Stiftung Insel Hombroich, the Münster Kunstakademie, Heinrich Heine University, and the Fulbright Commission for all the love, support, generosity and for helping me develop my work.
I would like to invite you all to the first solo exhibition of my work at Penn State Altoona. The exhibition of work, Changed Places, will run from September 12 until November 16, 2018. See you there!
For Immediate Release:
ALTOONA – The exhibition of work, Changed Places, by Ryan Schroeder will run September 12 until November 16...
I have been awarded a 2017-2018 Fulbright Grant to Germany! I wanted to share this remarkable honor with you if I have not already. I am elated and humbled by the opportunity to serve as an artistic and cultural liaison for the United States in Europe. In Germany, I will conduct research, support the teaching of English, and create art at the Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf as part of a project intended to address the effects of the Garzweiler mines, in the ghost town of Immerath. My work will engage the socio-economic realities of life in a condemned mining community. I will also be exploring the historical significance of the Ruhr region in developing German industry, and the impact these changes had on European art and culture.
For more information, please see the official PR document provided by the Fulbright Foundation.

I am having a couple of shows in New York this month, and I want to invite you to all of them. Four of my paintings will be on view at One Art Space, in "Behind Narrative+Emerging Artists," TriBeCa. Also featured in this show is the work of Jennifer Young, Nick Gebhart, Thurston Belmer, Bruno Perillo and Marshall Jones. Curated by Diego Ponce and hosted by ONE ART SPACE & Danniel Giella.
Tell Yourselves Why You Were There, is an exhibition of the work of Mila Rochenner and Ryan M Schroeder. The show revolves around relationships, notions of the irrelevant, and the forgotten. Backward looking visions inform much of the works in the form of memory. The title is a play off of a quote from Louis Scutenaire, about the so-called, Période Vache, 1947-48, paintings by Rene Magritte. "We have eyes to see. This time, once in a thousand, we’re not asking ourselves a question. We're asking you. Tell yourselves why you were beaten. We would indeed be honored and even surprised." The Vache paintings created by Magritte challenged the idea of so-called, "bad painting” and taste. The work was an attempt to run contrary to art world norms. The paintings and objects on display seek to reflect reality as a metaphor. A metaphor for having experienced a physical place or emotional state.
