DESCRIPTION

With endearing wit, Canadian-born Steve Reinke makes videos and two-dimensional works that use diaristic and collage elements to relate desire, philosophy and pop culture. Reinke’s videos, ranging in length from a couple minutes to feature-length often feature wryly-humorous uses of voiceover and rhetorical structures. The exhibition will feature new video and two-dimensional works by Reinke alongside videos made in collaboration with Dani Leventhal, John Marriott, Jessie Mott and James Richards. Also on display will be individual artworks by Reinke’s collaborators.

Steve Reinke is an artist and writer best known for his work in video. His work is in many collections including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Centre Pompidou (Paris) and the National Gallery (Ottawa), and has screened at many festivals including Sundance, Rotterdam, Oberhausen and the New York Video Festival. In 2006 he received the Bell Canada Video Award. Coach House Press published a book of Reinke’s scripts, Everybody Loves Nothing, in 2004. He is currently an associate professor of Art Theory & Practice at Northwestern University.
