Fridman Gallery presents IFICATION by multidisciplinary artist Nina Katchadourian.

Nina Katchadourian’s first exhibition with the gallery includes selections from her recent traveling museum retrospective Curiouser, organized by the Blanton Museum of Art and curated by Veronica Roberts. Central to the exhibition is Seat Assignment, an extensive ongoing body of work made in-flight on airplanes using only a cell phone and found materials. The exhibition is the first comprehensive showing of Seat Assignment in New York. ​

LIVE EVENT: On-Hold Music Dance Party

On March 7, 9:30–11 pm, the gallery will host Katchadourian’s On-Hold Music Dance Party (2017). For several years, Katchadourian recorded the music she heard while placed on hold during phone calls. She then collaborated with two New York-based DJs, Julie Covello (DJ Shakey) and Gabriel Willow (DJ Stylus), to sample, chop, loop, and mix this music with other “phone matter,” such as dial tones and voice prompts, transforming our usual experience of on-hold music into something highly activated, energized, and physically engaging.
