Opening reception for "Answers to Questions: John Wood and Paul Harrison"
6 to 8 p.m.
H&R Block Artspace at KCAI 16 E. 43rd St.
On view through Sept. 24
John Wood and Paul Harrison, a British collaborative duo, make single-channel videos, multipart video installations, sculptural objects, and works on paper that elegantly fuse advanced aesthetic research with existential comedy.
The artists’ spare, to-the-point works feature the actions of their own bodies, a wide range of static and moving props, or combinations of both to illustrate the triumphs and tribulations of making art and having a life.
“Answers to Questions: John Wood and Paul Harrison” is the first United States museum survey of work in video by this British artistic team and is curated by Toby Kamps, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Menil Collection, Houston.
