Press Release

Wineke Gartz\, an Amsterdam based a rtist\, will show at 3A Gallery from March 22nd until April 19th\, in an ex hibition titled “American Pain(ting)”.  This work combines video\, drawings and collage with sound mixes. Gartz’s work was last shown in New York at 3 03 Gallery in 2009 in a group exhibition curated by the artist\, Dan Graham .  “American Pain” involves an investigation of the American dream landscap e\, linking historical 19th Century American “luminist” landscape painting (such as Thomas Cole) to the present-day Disneyotic Fantasyland in the subu rban arcadia setting of the Native American operated “Mohegan Sun” casino-e ntertainment complex.

\n

The casino’s theme-park-like setting can be v iewed as a temple linking America’s Native American past to the promised fu ture dreams of monetary success and a luxurious glamour “life style” for vi sitors who flock to “Mohigan Sun” ‘Country’ by bus from Chinatown. Gartz vi sualizes “Mohegan Sun’s” interior architecture as a Kafkaesque “Nature Thea ter”.
