3. Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest in Bloom at The New Museum
The exhibit Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest occupies the three main floors of The New Museum, with a kaleidoscopic presentation of the Swiss artist’s work, spanning her entire career. The comprehensive presentation includes work from her early single-channel videos in the 1980’s, exploring the representation of the female body in popular culture, to recent work, which transforms spaces into dreamlike environments. With the use of television monitors, cinema screens, and smartphones, Rist works to fuse the biological with the electronic – an “ecstasy of communication.” Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest is curated by Massimilano Gioni, Elis Neeson, Artistic Director, Margot Norton, Associate Curator, and Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, with an illustrated catalogue co-published by The New Museum and Phaidon Press Limited. The exhibit is on view to January 15, 2017, located at The New Museum, 235 Bowery. Check out what Untapped Cities has been up to at The New Museum’s GSAPP Incubator.
