Sarah Morris: Sawdust and Tinsel

March 22, 2018 to June 17, 2018

“There are certain categories that continue to repeat themselves, whether they be cars, buildings, or a certain exchange between people.  You have the same sort of catalogue of gestures, a catalogue of moments, but they mean different things in all the different circumstances…”

“I am not interested in documentaries, I do not believe in any kind of objectivity.”

Jockum Nordström: Why Is Everything A Rag

March 22, 2018 to June 17, 2018

Why Is Everything A Rag is the first solo museum exhibition of the Stockholm-based artist Jockum Nordström in the United States.

Children’s books, jazz and blues vinyl covers, collages, drawings, paintings, and paper sculptures collected from the start of his career through today figure in a practice animated by and built of visual vernacular. Inhabiting liminal spaces heralded as much by surrealism as by folk traditions, Nordström looks to the cultural, psychological, and physical margins of society. Positioning his audience as voyeurs—into derelict buildings, soundscapes, and private lives—Nordström explores the conditions of “outsider” to develop an oeuvre of outlines—physical perimeters, cut-outs and scraps—creative edges of civilization.
