People who have saved this event:


​Gretchen Bender emerged in the early 1980s in New York as a contemporary of the Pictures Generation.


A commentator on the age of television, her work continues its relevancy in today’s privatized and multi-screened cultural landscape – in many ways, even predicting its development. Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to present The Perversion of the Visual, Bender’s second exhibition with the gallery and her first in Los Angeles since 1989. The show will feature the first of her two immersive and career-defining “electronic theater” works, Dumping Core (1984), shown for the first time on the West Coast since Bender performed it in 1986. Alongside the installation will be newly printed photo-collages that address the horrors of war and the fear of a collective numbness to its reality.
