Cory Arcangel: The Sharper Image
March 11 – May 9, 2010
The exhibition features significant works from 2002 to the present, including new works produced in early 2010. Taking a comprehensive view of Arcangel’s diverse practice, the exhibition includes videos, video game consoles, film, photographic prints, sculpture, drawings, web-based work, sound, and performance. Arcangel’s conceptual interventions into consumer technology brought him to prominence in the early 2000’s through his alterations of Nintendo games. Since then, Arcangel has continued to question the visual appearances, uses, and longevity of consumer technology, examining how it defines our lives.
