Artists Uri Aran and Ian Cheng speak about their work in the context of the exhibition Take Me (I’m Yours), in a conversation with Kelly Taxter, Associate Curator.

Uri Aran was born in Jerusalem and lives and works in New York. His installations collect objects and images, sculptural elements that are structured by the wall-mounted pedestals and worktables that provide the environment for the work. Unfolding like a theatrical storyboard, these configurations evoke fragments of narrative. Recent exhibitions include the 2014 Whitney Biennial and Liverpool Biennial, and the 2013 Venice Biennale.

Ian Cheng has been included in group exhibitions at MOCA, Cleveland (2016); Hirshhorn Museum, Washington (2016); Musee d’Moderne Paris (2015); MoMA PS1, New York (2013); and Sculpture Center, New York (2012), and has received solo shows in Milan, Oslo, London, Dusseldorf, Los Angeles, and Miami Beach.  Ian Cheng was born in Los Angeles and lives and works in New York.

Free with Pay-What-You-Wish Admission; RSVP Recommended
