About

Ryan Trecartin is widely considered to be the artist of our time.

Calvin Tompkins of The New Yorker recently dubbed him ‘a video art visionary’ whose work is full of ‘breaking news from the future’.

This Perth debut of Trecartin’s work features AGWA’s major new acquisitions, Sibling Topics (section a) (2009) and CENTER JENNY (2013). These incredibly intense and inventive works will be presented alongside four additional movies: K-CorealNC.K (section a) (2009), P.opular S.ky (section ish) (2009), Items Falls (2013) and Junior War (2013).

Screened daily, back to back, these six movies will immerse you in the ecstatic poetics of Trecartin’s practice.
