New Museum presents Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest (26 Oct 2016 – 15 Jan 2017), the most comprehensive presentation of Rist’s work in New York to date. It includes work spanning the artist’s entire career, from her early video works of the 1980s, to her recent immersive installations.
Over the past thirty years, Rist (b. 1962) has achieved international renown as a pioneer of video art and multimedia installations. Her mesmerizing works envelop viewers in sensual, vibrantly colored kaleidoscopic projections that fuse the natural world with the technological sublime. Referring to her art as a “glorification of the wonder of evolution,” Rist maintains a deep sense of curiosity that pervades her explorations of physical and psychological experiences. Her works bring viewers into unexpected, all-consuming encounters with the textures, forms, and functions of the living universe around us.
Occupying the three main floors of the Museum, “Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest” is the most comprehensive presentation of Rist’s work in New York to date.
