DESCRIPTION

The Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to present Commercial Psycho, curated by Will Benedict and including works by Chantal Akerman, Clegg & Guttmann, Jan Groover, Suzy Lake, Mark Leckey, Sabine Reitmaier, Franz Erhard Walther, William Wegman, and Christopher Williams.

The exhibition is a look at the distance between commercial work and experimental conventions and how a host of issues such as duration, repetition, the division of labor and gender are managed in this dichotomy, how they cross over into each other and can create a comfortable or uncomfortable schizophrenia.

Will Benedict is an artist living in Vienna. Recent exhibitions include Bonjour Tourist, Gio Marconi, Milan (2012) and Bread and Butt (w/ Julie Verhoeven), Galerie Meyer Kainer, Vienna (2012). Since 2008 he has run the exhibition space Pro Choice with Lucie Stahl.
