Ryan Trecartin was recently named winner of the Jack Wolgin International Competition in the Fine Arts, and New Artist of the Year by the Guggenheim Museum’s First Annual Art Awards. Trecartin will screen his forty-minute video P.opular S.ky (section ish) (2009) which will be followed by a discussion with Amy Kazymerchyk and the audience.
At once highly complex and fast-paced, Trecartin’s videos, which are usually exhibited within installations, place viewers inside exhilaratingly chaotic environments primed for post-racial, post-gender, and post-human encounters that collapse time, space, and identity into a layered and wholly unforgettable experience.
