The Stedelijk Museum presents the first European museum solo exhibition “Scenes” of the American artist Avery Singer and her very first presentation in the Netherlands. The show offers a comprehensive view of the artist’s work since 2012.
Singer creates pictures that are iconographically complex, culled from internet image searches based in genres and trends inherited from the history of art. Pursuing what she has called “new possibilities for portraying naturalism,” Singer’s mode of painting brings together a mix of visual traditions that span the technologies of visuality, from the pre-photographic to the post-digital. (Quote from “Hammer Project“)
In the IMC Gallery on the first floor, Singer will exhibit the vast installation that was enthusiastically received during her statements presentation at Art Basel in 2015, and which has since been added to the Stedelijk’s permanent collection. Also included are several recent works realized specifically for the Stedelijk. Till October 2nd. And on April 22nd, Avery Singer invites MikeQ and dj Watercolor to produce a “sound carpet” that, along with visitors’ voices, will form Singer’s newest artwork: a live recording.
