Brian Khek is presenting his first New York solo exhibition, Sister Cities, at American Medium, running February 7 to 9.
The Miami Dutch (nee No New Info) member exhibited with the “corps collectif of self-evasive characters” at the Institute Bianche group show at London’s Library+ last year, while taking part in Hans Ulrich Obrist and Simon Castets’ 89plus and recently collaborating with Bea Fremderman and Micah Schippa on Definitely Living Likely Cognitive.
The Chicago artist’s practice works in exploiting relationships surrounding globalized consumer cultures, which the following Sister Cities blurb certainly points to:
“We grew wheat and hunted to survive. Then roads, places, and skills followed. Now the community we conceived needs something from us, more than a cup of sugar or your Wi-Fi password. They are taking back their land, customs, and concepts. This is a codependence not between people but of the city and the city’s Name.”
