Another Show We Cannot Miss

still from Giardini, 2009

Steve McQueen has two new works currently on view at Marian Goodman until 6MAR - Giardini and Static. We have his recent film Hunger on our Netflix queue and cannot wait to see it!

Giardini, a visually sumptuous film of 30 minutes, is composed of two projections set side-by-side, which steadily gather a series of evocative vignettes. As the title suggests, the film is set in the famous exhibitions grounds in Venice – as T.J. Demos writes in his essay in 'Giardini Notebook' "the location of the ageing national pavilions. These otherwise well known monuments are shown here in an unexpected light, during the interim between biennales, in the down-time and during the nights, in the shadows of spectacle."
