This event has ended.

This exhibition features a new series of animated projections by the New York-based artist Paul Chan. Since 2005, Chan has been working on an ambitious series of seven video installations that present hallucinatory interpretations of the myth of creation, evoking an atmosphere of destruction and ecstatic revelation. Chan mixes images of simple beauty with traumatic memories from 9/11 and illuminating quotations from art history. The show is the American premiere of Chan’s The 7 Lights, which will be accompanied by other videos and works on paper. The exhibition will offer a unique occasion to contemplate Chan’s work in New York, the city that has inspired many of his visions.

The exhibition is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Director of Special Exhibitions.

    This is the show to see at the new museum - the light installations are mysterious - continually changing, all different - these 7 projections fill the gallery.
