Ragnar Kjartansson: Me, My Mother, My Father, and I
Through June 29
In Ragnar Kjartansson: Me, My Mother, My Father, and I, the Icelandic artist examines the fusion of fantasy and reality, myth and identity. Raised in a family of performers, Kjartansson is interested in the boundaries of dramatics. Through performance pieces (one of which includes ten live musicians), video installations, paintings, and drawings, Kjartansson explores the performance of identity and the romanticized conception of the artist as cultural hero. His parents not only lend their titles to the exhibitions namesake, but also helped to collaborate on multiple pieces in the collection.
