Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Keren Cytter—the Israeli-born, New York-based video artist best known for her raw filmmaking and revealing storylines—is currently showing nine videos at the MCA Chicago, as part of her first large-scale show in the United States. Through her films’ multiple plotlines, languages, and genres, the artist feeds off of the detachment and disbelief that life’s absurdities can bring. Cytter’s characters repeat actions, speak in different languages, and appear devoid of emotion. On view through October 4, the show also includes live performance works and a new series of drawings.
“Keren Cytter” is organized by the Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, Denmark and accompanied by a new anthology by the exhibition’s curator and Director of the Kunsthal, Jacob Fabricius, and the MCA’s Naomi Beckwith,.
