Jesse Sugarmann: Works & Days
Fri., May 13, 6-8 p.m. and Fridays-Sundays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through June 25 2011
PICA recently announced the list for this year's TBA festival, and the programming for their On Sight series includes the work of Jesse Sugarmann. Sugarmann's work is all about automobiles; among his video work are images of vehicles balanced on stilts, and cars rising, precariously, on top of inflating mattresses. The sense of tension at a monumental scale harkens back to work of the '70s; Richard Serra's lead lean-tos comes to mind.
