is currently featured in Sleepless, a solo exhibition at Golden Gallery, and in a group screening at Participant, Inc. both in New York City.
Sleepless is an exhibition drawn from Ischar?s institutional exhibition history from 1993 - 1995. Two large bodies of work, Orderly and Wake - presented at The List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge; Museo de Arte Moderna, São Paulo; Mercer Union, Toronto; and SITE Santa Fe, among others ? emerged at a moment when the exploration of media, and cross-disciplinary practices, were critical actions further complicating the then-peculiar state of semiotics. The current exhibition presents the opportunity for the artist, and the public, to re-approach selected components from those early 90s installations, nearly two decades from their original conception and exhibition. Ischar?s editing of moving image and static objects continues to address the practical and visual boundaries for definitions of masculinity, sexuality, violence and secrecy.
Golden Gallery, Inc. is proud to present a public screening Sunday, January 8, 2012, 8 - 9:30pm with a reception to follow. Gregg Bordowitz, Doug Ischar and Tom Kalin each address personal engagements with literature, poetic spectatorship, and the erotics of voyeurism. This program is graciously being hosted by Participant Inc., 253 E Houston, New York.
