In advance of Ryan Trecartin’s upcoming exhibition at PS1, the artist has released a trailer teaser to get us all excited for a new batch of video works.
This two-minute trailer marks the first time that Trecartin has cut together his longer videos into a shorter clip reel. Not surprisingly, the trailer format works well for the artist, whose work is often characterized by its frenetic pace and in-your-face attitude. If you don’t like his other work, this certainly isn’t going to convince you that Ryan is the next great video artist. But if you’re into it, it looks like more of the same — crazy slang, sassy characters with weird make-up and barren suburban landscapes.
Ryan Trecartin’s ANY EVER is on view at PS1 (22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City) from June 19 through September 3. The opening date happens to fall on Father’s Day. A purposeful gesture? We’ll have to see. Here’s hoping the show is better than Laurel Nakadate’s current self-obsessed floor-size showcase.
