This is the most substantial exhibition to date devoted to Paul Pfeiffer's video, photography, and sculpture. Pfeiffer's work addresses the many problematic aspects of present and future worlds dominated by astonishing revolutions in visual representation, while exploring universal themes of identity, race, and culture, often through imagery from sports, film, and popular culture. The exhibition premieres a number of new works including Corner Piece, Live Evil, and Poltergeist, as well as the remarkable Morning After the Deluge in which sunrise and sunset are impossibly yet scintillatingly fused into one image.


Pfeiffer, winner of the Bucksbaum award from the 2000 Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial, is currently an artist-in-residence at MIT.
