Join us for a walkthrough of the exhibition As If: Alternative Histories from Then to Now with Laura Hoptman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center, and artist Keith Mayerson.
Keith Mayerson has professionally exhibited his art in galleries and museums since 1993. His exhibitions are often installations of images that create larger narratives. Each work is imbued with allegorical content that relates to the world, yet allows through its formal nuances for the transcendent and sublime. The works stand on their own for form and content, but like a prose poem of images on walls, experienced in context the images as a series, the viewer creates the ultimate meaning for the installations. Three works from his 1993 series Pinocchio the Big Fag are on view as part of As If: Alternative Histories from Then to Now. The series was first shown in its entirety at the Drawing Center in 1994.
