Alex Bag
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


New York-based artist Alex Bag is known for her acerbic video art--by turns hilarious and horrific--which co-opts the aesthetics and manipulative tactics of pop culture. Bag skewers the strategies of music and home videos, talk shows, news and advertising with irreverent and conceptually sharp parodies that leave nothing sacred: the art world, consumer culture and Private Jessica Lynch all serve as material for her riotous characters. The most in-depth publication on her work to date, this volume, published concurrently with an exhibition at the Whitney Museum, features texts by Whitney curator Shamim Momin, "Artforum" contributing editor David Rimanelli and gallerist Elizabeth Dee, as well as an interview with the artist, and a comprehensive selection of stills from her video oeuvre, including the iconic art school parody, "Untitled (Fall '95)" and the hilarious art world send-up "The Van."
