Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac
27 JANUARY – 16 MARCH 2019
Cory Arcangel’s First Solo Exhibition in Three Years
and The Most Comprehensive Presentation of his Scanner Paintings to Date
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac presents Verticals, an exhibition of works by American artist Cory Arcangel with a focus on his new series of 14 Scanner Paintings. These new works are shown together with a number of drawings, a laser animation, two video sculptures referring to Nam June Paik’s TV Buddha and a new minimalist sound installation.
A pioneer of technology-based art, Arcangel works in a wide variety of media, including music composition, video, modified video games, performance and the Internet. The ageing process of technologies is always a central question in his oeuvre and the ease with which he recognises how to use software, hardware and Internet resources as raw artistic material, placing them in new contexts, reveals a new kind of style.
