press release

On the occasion of Harry Dodge’s solo exhibition at Wallspace Gallery in New York, The Kitchen hosts a screening of Dodge’s Ipse Dixit (2011), Unkillable (2011), and Fred Can Never Be Called Bald (2011). This trilogy explores the relationship between language and image, as well as the inexorability of narrative progress or momentum itself, in different tonal and formal registers. All three works derive from Dodge’s interest in the collision of our 21st-century enthrallment with the virtual world and our continued, often desperate engagement with our own physical bodies and extreme forces of nature, including that of our own mortality.

This program is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
