Among this summer's blockbuster museum exhibitions are a pair of shows by still very young American artists, so young in fact that both were included in the New Museum's Younger Than Jesus exhibition: 33-year-old Brooklynite Cory Arcangel (whose Pro Tools shows at the Whitney through September 11), and L.A.-based 30-year-old Ryan Trecartin, whose Any Ever opens at MoMA PS1 on June 19th, and is so blockbuster he even made this crazy trailer for it.
The disjointed assemblage of snippets from his supremely disjointed video art oeuvre is about as jarring as you'd expect, though some typically Trecartinian lines stand out, like the opener: "Being post-family and pre-hotel ends today for me." More intriguing, though, is what the trailer leaves out: the large-scale installation that will no doubt frame the videos on view at PS1, and which in his past shows have included everything from giant prison cell-like cages to trashed living rooms and airplane fuselage. This will be one not to miss.
