DESCRIPTION

The first North American museum exhibition of works by Alexandre Singh, this presentation will be comprised of the artist’s new series of Assembly Instructions entitled The Pledge. This project takes interviews that the artist conducted throughout 2011 with noted scientists, artists, writers, and filmmakers, and transforms them into fictional dialogues visualized according to Singh’s signature format of collaged photocopies connected by hand-drawn pencil dots on the wall. Filling the Main Gallery, Singh’s fictionalized—and spatialized—interviews will position drawing not only as a physical gesture, but also as a graphic conduit for the imaginative process.
