Douglas Gordon: Timeline
Scottish artist Douglas Gordon addresses the familiarity and popularity of moving pictures by manipulating, reframing, and superimposing them to alter viewers' perceptions. This retrospective of Gordon's work presents thirteen significant works by the artist, including 24 Hour Psycho (1993), Between Darkness and Light (After William Blake) (1997), and Play Dead; Real Time (2003). By forcing new encounters with the familiar and confrontations with the willfully forgotten, Gordon exposes the distance between our dimmed, distorted memories and, perhaps, the truth–emphatically demonstrating that what he sculpts is not only media but time itself.
Chicks On Speed formed in 1997 after the members met at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. The group, Alex Murray Leslie (Sydney), Melissa Logan (New York), and Kiki Moorse (Munich), started as an art project that has gradually merged with the medium of music.
Chicks On Speed urge you to come overdressed to this "living sculpture," where they will perform their new Eurotrash hit single "Art Rules" for the very first time.
PopRally would like to thank The Tribeca Grand Hotel for their generous support of this event.
