> DESCRIPTION

The Contemporary Art Gallery presents My Best Thing (2011), Frances Stark's first feature-length animation. Initially presented in ILLUMInations at the 54th Venice Biennale, this recent work has rapidly gained critical attention. Using transcripts of an on-line relationship between Stark and two random strangers, the video unfolds to build an intimate portrait of the artist and her creative process. It continues Stark's ongoing concerns with expectation and gender infused with notions of doubt, anxiety and musings on the general state of things. While arguably best known for her works on paper, where such issues are seen through the lens of writing, drawing and collage, her videos and performance pieces likewise comprise a forceful component in her overall artistic proposition.
