NYU MFA THESIS EXHIBITION IN THREE PARTS
Part III: Jordan Albaugh, Nathaniel Axel, Lauren Klenow, Megha Mattoo
5/14/14 - 5/24/14
Opening Reception 5/14/14 5-8pm
"There is a sly gamesmanship in the work of Jordan Albaugh (p.3—8), who estranges the pseudo-familiar by running it through operations of his own design: algorithmic, aesthetic, intimate. He’s hacked bodies and landscapes from the cozy corners of video games, cracking the images along new coordinates and editing them into hypnotic loops. If nature was once a subject in art for contemplation or meditation, on Albaugh’s watch time goes ouroboric (better yet, ouro-botic), giving an unending performance of finitude. His drawings and collages are executed with a similar wit and sleight of hand — hear here also, slight of hand — reminding us that disappearing acts can only happen when we’re not looking."

The Exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with an essay written by Jennifer Krasinski.
