Cory Arcangel: All the Small Things
A solo exhibition by American artist Cory Arcangel (b. 1978), features both new works and a selection of seminal early works which have been re-configured by the artist specifically for the exhibition. Although Arcangel is only in his thirties, he has already made a name for himself as a pioneer who combines digital technologies with art. Besides creating and manipulating drawings, sculptures, photographs, and videos with digital tools, Arcangel is also notorious for his re-configuration of video games by tweaking computer code. He finds an abject beauty in technologies that were once state-of-the-art and are doomed to obsolescence. Altering and manipulating both contemporary and dated technologies Arcangel calls attention to the complicated, evolving relationships we have as consumers, to the tools, media platforms, and data that saturate our screens and blurs the line between popular culture and art
Arcangel has achieved international success and acclaim and has exhibited extensively at both galleries and major museums, such as the Carnegie Museum of Art, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Barbican, and MoCA, North Miami. His works are in the collections of MoMA, the Smithsonian and the Tate. He is represented by Team Gallery in New York, Lisson Gallery in London, and Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery in Paris and Salzburg.
