This event has ended.

Continuing the theme of the psychological underpinnings of today’s urban condition, this group show includes work that spans several decades, emphasizing the experience of transparency, reflection and mediation within the contemporary city. Dan Graham’s Performer, Audience, Mirror (1975) presents the relationship between the self and other as one of reflection and display, anticipating his quasi-architectural two-way mirror pavilion structures which produce reflective overlays of the individual and the group. Servane Mary’s corner piece, Untitled (Jean Seberg and The Mirror) (2012), incorporates the reflections of the viewer and the surrounding space with a mirrored portrait of the actress in her iconic role in Godard’s urban feature “Breathless.” Heidi Schlatter’s light box image of a New York City housing project, Residential Towers, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (2000) presents an ironic “reversal” of real estate advertisements, while Jaques Tati’s 1967 film Playtime offers a satiric view of a city transformed by the cool rationalism of the International Style.
