Brian Whiteley is a Brooklyn based multi-media artist focused on myth-making and hijacking the media-machine through absurd and anonymous, public performances. His practice capitalizes on our obsession with the unreal, the uncanny and our apparent, underlying need for these strange fascinations to be actualized. Whiteley’s mid-career survey, curated by Jesse Firestone, will feature photography, video, sculpture, and other ephemera related to his two most notorious performances as clowns and Bigfoot in urban environments. These performances have garnered over millions of views on the internet and were featured in hundreds of press articles. Opening Reception, February 12, 7-10 p.m. at the Swenson Gallery. The exhibition runs from February 12 – February 29.
