> DESCRIPTION

Throughout his career, Peter Coffin (b. Berkeley, California, 1972; lives and works in New York) has created an unpredictable and eclectic array of works, including many that express a sense of joy and sometimes, humor. The artist, whose practice includes photography, assemblage, performance, time-based media, installations, sound art, and sculpture in many forms, often draws inspiration from odd facts or obscure theories. To emphasize the artist’s chameleon-like virtuosity, the works in the exhibition, rather than being concentrated within one exhibition area, are installed in spaces around the Museum. Nature, science, pseudo-science, psychological displacement, urban happenstance, and “what if” brainstorms are among the myriad departure points for his pieces, but what is constant is the undercurrent of his unique, exuberant subversiveness.
