Co-presented by Andrea Rosen Gallery and Regen Projects
Directed by Ryan Trecartin
“The most consequential artist to have emerged since the 1980s.”
—The New Yorker

Originally presented in installation form at the 55th Venice Biennale, these four new movies expand on Trecartin’s deep preoccupations with language and the formation of community while rendering (and lampooning) the existential traumas of seeking personal agency and identity in our age of infinite optionality. Part social science fiction, part formalist tour de force, each film revolves around a character ensemble ranging from the artist’s high school classmates, shot fifteen years ago when he was a teenager himself (Junior War), to an ornate caste system of dozens of meta-reality show aspirants named Jenny and their authoritarian minders (CENTER JENNY).

All films are US premieres:
Junior War (2013)
Comma Boat (2013)
CENTER JENNY (2013)
Item Falls (2013)
