New York–based multidisciplinary artist Keren Cytter (Israeli, b. 1977) plays with the conventions of narrative cinema to reveal or upend their unwritten rules. Her pared-down style of filmmaking utilizes the barest of resources; she often films in her own apartment and incorporates intentionally kitschy, lo-fi effects. These canny, low-budget videos create the atmosphere of film noir, hor...   [more]

This democratized approach to the role art plays within a museum, gallery, or home continues to the present day, with contemporary artists self-consciously creating works that interact with audiences. S, M, L, XL highlights four works that reflect this artistic at...   [more]

Brazilian artist Alexandre da Cunha (b. 1969) is a poet of found materials.

For a 2013 exhibition at the MCA, Homebodies, da Cunha fashioned an undulating wall made with mop heads that mimicked a midcentury...   [more]
