Adam Pendleton: BAND
Curated by Rashida Bumbray
This solo exhibition presents the U.S. premiere of Adam Pendleton’s new large scale video installation. Pendleton’s BAND is a form and content refashioning of Jean-Luc Godard's Sympathy for the Devil, which stands in open contrast to the earlier film. Modeling Godard's belief that radical formal complexity can undermine the bourgeois logic implicit to narrative filmmaking, BAND tracks the indie-rock band Deerhoof working on and recording a new song, I Did Crimes for You. The exhibition also features new works from Pendleton’s ongoing Black Dada and System of Display series.
Exhibition Hours: Tues-Fri, 12-6 pm; Sat 11-6 pm FREE
This exhibition is made possible with the support of Dedalus Foundation, Inc., The Greenwall Foundation, the Jerome Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
