Hito Steyerl is an acute observer and interpreter of globalized and digitized cultures; her work often blends the personal with the political and irony with seriousness as she investigates how images are created, packaged and consumed.
This exhibition will be the first solo show in Canada for the German artist, filmmaker, writer and cultural critic. Taking up all of Level 5 of the David & Vivian Campbell Centre for Contemporary Art, the exhibition includes some of the artist’s most iconic works to date, ranging from single-channel projections and video monitor works, to elaborate architectural environments.
Three of Steyerl’s large-scale works will be highlighted in the exhibition: Hell Yeah We Fuck Die (2016), ExtraSpaceCraft (2016) and Liquidity Inc. (2014), and will be presented next to other works from the last 15 years such as Duty Free Art (2015), Strike (2010), Red Alert (2007) and November (2004).
Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario
