James Cohan is pleased to present the group exhibition Dream Machines. The exhibition considers the point at which the real and the imaginary cease to be perceived as contradictory.

About

The exhibition advances an aesthetic approach that does not easily conform to a paradigmatic concept of beauty rather favors strategies of fragment, the montage, the heterogeneous, and the psychically incisive. From Lee Mullican’s 1963 series of painted magazine covers to Jon Rafman’s dream-like video installation, a desire to see more deeply and make visible what remains comfortably unseen animates the work of these artists. As discourses of reality/unreality become an increasingly dominant feature of our day to day lives, Dream Machines posits that artists can navigate across both collecting meaning along the way.

The exhibition features works by artists that crisscross generations, nationalities, materials and processes including David Altmejd, Omer Fast, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Mernet Larsen, Lee Mullican, Jon Rafman, Tabaimo, Fred Tomaselli, and The Propeller Group.
