The Distance of a Day
New in Contemporary Art

April 20, 2016-October 29, 2016

Location: Rena (Fisch) and Robert Lewin Gallery, Hildegard and Simon Rothschild Foundation Gallery

Artist:

Zoya Cherkassky, Tala Madani, Roman Ondák, Trevor Paglen, R. H. Quaytman, Elias Sime

 



Curator: Rita Kersting

This selection of recently acquired video works, sculptures, and installations by some of today’s leading international artists explores – concretely and conceptually – the themes of connection and disconnection, unity and separation. The exhibition takes its title from David Horvitz’s video work The Distance of a Day (2013), displayed on two iPhone screens, which presents a sunrise and a sunset captured at exactly the same time by the artist and his mother – one in Los Angeles and the other in the Maldives. Also on view are works by Zoya Cherkassky, Tala Madani, Roman Ondák, Trevor Paglen, R. H. Quaytman, Elias Sime, and others.
