Videos by Zach Nader
Admission $6 - Artist in person
Microscope Gallery is very pleased to present great times are waiting, the first solo-screening of video works by Texas-born, Brooklyn-based artist Zach Nader. The curated program includes works made over the last three years utilizing found online footage, advertisements, and television programming to examine the way anticipation and expectation proliferate throughout image culture. A key question asked in these works is: how do we collectively view and understand our viewing? Through complication of the source material, existing images are used to navigate new ways of approaching aspiration and loss.
“Combing the current torrent of images, I alter visual content in a search for new possibilities of visuality and perception.” –ZN
