Exhibition: Past The Tiny VentriloquistNov 02–Dec 18, 2010


With endearing wit, Chicago-based, Canadian-born Steve Reinke makes work in a mock confessional mode about sex, death, and whatever comes in between. This exhibition premieres a new suite of videos, The Tiny Ventriloquist, commissioned by Gallery 400, as well as works in other media, including drawing and needlepoint. New and recent collaborative videos are also featured alongside solo works by the following collaborators: Dani Leventhal, John Marriott, Jessie Mott, and James Richards. The exhibition will be accompanied by the forthcoming publication of Reinke ’s book, The Shimmering Beast.
