The Armory Show 2015: March 5th – March 8th
James Harris Gallery: Pier 94 – Booth 525
James Harris Gallery is pleased to announce Gary Hill’s participation in the 2015 Armory Show in New York City. The gallery is representing Hill in a solo show of four works including “Inasmuch As It Has Already Taken Place” (2014), “Klein Bottle with the Image of Its Own Making (after Robert Morris)” (2014), “Conundrum” (1995-1998), and “Poor Man’s Guilt” (2007).
Since the 1970’s, Gary Hill has been a foundational figure for new media, innovatively employing new technology with his performance and installation based practice to explore the psychology of the moving image and themes around language and consciousness. His experimental approach offers a self-reflexive perspective that is both poetic and socio-culturally aware. As historian Lynne Cooke asserts in her forward to An Art of Limina: Gary Hill’s Works and Writings in 2009, “No artist of Hill’s generation probed this medium with such invasive scrutiny, and none deployed it with such protean irreverence.” Apart from his inclusion in world-renowned public and private collections, Hill has been awarded two Guggenheim fellowships and the prestigious MacArthur Foundation Grant.
