    Eteam is back! Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger return to their parched parcel of property in Nevada (previously seen in 1.1 Acre Flat Screen) only to face a right-of-way dilemma, right away, as a thoroughfare plows through their 660-square-foot square of scrub.

With earlier works by both artists.

The innovative works of Darrin Martin use video as raw material for the reinvention of social mythologies, from Aviator, which gives performative expression to flying as a psychic state, to his object-related futuro-performance collaborations with Torsten Burns, to a recent visual exploration of acoustic loss, Monograph in Stereo.

  • Hybrid Autos, Part 1

    • Wednesday, March 1 19:30
