. June 19, 2011 . 0 Comments

MoMA PS1 presents Any Ever, the New York premiere of the artist Ryan Trecartin’s (b. 1981, Webster, Tex.) 2007-2010 body of work, produced in Miami with collaborator Lizzie Fitch and contributors ranging from friends and fellow artists to working child actors. On view June 19, 2011–September 3, 2011.

MoMA PS1’s first-floor Main Gallery will be devoted to the nonsequential series of seven movies, which are structurally conceived in two parts, one consisting of a trilogy, Trill-ogy Comp (2009), and the other a quartet, Re’Search Wait’S (2009-10). The movies are interconnected spatially via networked viewing rooms and materially by characters, semblances of plot, and formal, recurring motifs.

Having emerged from the 2000s as an innovator of ecstatic new frontiers in art and cinema, Trecartin has been influential within the art world and among a broader, intergenerational set of thinkers and cultural consumers. Consistent with his work to date, this latest series mines emergent evolutions of identity, narrative, language, and visual culture for content, and propels these matters forward as expressive mediums, through darkly jubilant and categorically frenetic formal experimentations.

Ryan Trecartin: Any Ever is made possible by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
