Opening Thu, September 28, 7 pm

Shahryar Nashat (b. 1975) is preoccupied with sculpture and video, taking aim on the dynamics of desire and the need for representation. For his largest institutional solo show to date, Nashat presents a newly commissioned film and group of sculptures that interweave autobiographical fragments and technoid aesthetics.
