10 unmissable art exhibits that will bring contemporary masterpieces worldwide during winter 2016/17.
PIPILOTTI RIST at New Museum, New York
through January 15, 2017.
Images of the new installation by Pipilotti Rist, Pixel Forest, have already gone viral. The solo exhibition, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, occupies the three main floors of the New Museum, and it’s the bigger collection of Rist’s works ever shown in New York.
Starting with her early single-channel videos from the 1980s, which investigated female body representation in pop culture, to the immersive video installation, reaching a site specific work created and installed specifically for this exposition, the visitors are sensory involved in the main themes featured in the artist’s work. Nature and technology, biological and electronic. It all merges together to create sensual engagement and a reflection on the means of communication.
