Every Future Has a Price | 30 Years After Infotainment

  • Elizabeth Dee Gallery 2037 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10035 United States

Elizabeth Dee is pleased to present the second exhibition of this season, Every Future Has a Price: 30 Years After Infotainment, which will open on Saturday, October 29th with a public opening from 4-8PM.

The original exhibition, Infotainment, was organized by Anne Livet, in close collaboration with artists and co-founders of the gallery Nature Morte, Peter Nagy and Alan Belcher, and was a legendary intellectual appraisal of an interrelated East Village gallery scene in the 1980s. Infotainment argued for a generation of artists who adhered to neither Neo-expressionist painting nor the direct repurposing of images by the Pictures Generation, but instead imbued their content with social and philosophical resonance. Inheritors of 1960s Conceptualism, these artists worked with increased stylization, transference of images, appropriation and subversion of authorship in favor of that which relates to media, television and advertising, thus furthering the dialogue of the Pictures Generation artists through strategies arguably more relevant to the social and political time of the 1980s.
