People who have saved this event:


La MaMa Galleria is pleased to present Unwelcome Guest, the first solo show of New York-based artist Zach Bruder.


These new works riff variously on still lives, figuration, and landscape, employing a bold, graphic sensibility in portraying aspects of Americana: its domestic architecture, its art history, its myths. As reinterpretations of traditional painterly genres, the works explore each subject as a recursive entity that sprawls outwards or collapses into itself. Unwelcome Guest, as a title, refers to this transitory nature of American life, where both images and people are swept up in their own rise and fall. In a complementary fashion, the title also refers to its function as a backdrop for a series of performances, with a group of artists invited to perform works around the exhibition’s themes of repetition and circularity.
