FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 12th - August 17th, 2012
Opening reception: Thursday, July 12th, 2012, 6 - 8 pm
The Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to present Commercial Psycho, curated by Will Benedict and including works by Chantal Akerman, Clegg & Guttmann, Jan Groover, Suzy Lake, Mark Leckey, Sabine Reitmaier, Franz Erhard Walther, William Wegman, and Christopher Williams.
The exhibition is a look at the distance between commercial work and experimental conventions and how a host of issues such as duration, repetition, the division of labor and gender are managed in this dichotomy, how they cross over into each other and can create a comfortable or uncomfortable schizophrenia.
Will Benedict is an artist living in Vienna. Recent exhibitions include Bonjour Tourist, Gio Marconi, Milan (2012) and Bread and Butt (with Julie Verhoeven), Galerie Meyer Kainer, Vienna (2012). Since 2008 he has run the exhibition space Pro Choice with Lucie Stahl.
