In addition to the Venice Biennale, Marijke van Warmerdam has participated in numerous international exhibitions, including the Sydney, Berlin and Gwangju Biennials, and documenta X. She has had major solo exhibitions at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the ICA in Boston, MAC in Marseille and The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. A retrospective of her work has been shown at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art in Porto and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.

Van Warmerdam is a regular advisor at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam and Professor of Art at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe since 2004.

While providing mentorship to young artists she draws on her experience with the dynamics between sculpture, film, and photography. Her sculptural approach is characteristic of her work, a seamless follow-through from her beginnings as a sculptor.
