is featured in the current issue of ArtForum with a review of his recent show, Sleepless, at Golden Gallery, NYC.
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.
