Adam Shecter : New Year
March 4 – April 16, 2016
Opening: Friday, March 4th, 5 - 9 p.m.
Artist Talk: Friday, March 4th, 6 p.m.
Shecter's animated videos blend multiple techniques and employ a range of stylistic notes to craft layered narratives. His works draw on the rhythm of graphic novels and render both a futuristic sci-fi vision and a poetic meditation on the everyday.
For his 1708 Gallery exhibition, Shecter's most recent work, New Year, will be on display. He will also be showing two video studies and a movie poster which will be available as a takeaway for his film in progress, Satellites.
Born in Dallas, Shecter currently lives and works in New York and was educated at McGill University, Montreal and Bank Street College of Education, NY as well as the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He is a 2014 MacDowell Fellow in Film and Video, and was selected for the Drawing Center’s inaugural Open Sessions Program. He is represented by 11R Gallery, New York. He has had solo exhibitions and screenings at 11R Gallery, New York; St. Ann’s Warehouse: Experimental Puppet Lab, Brooklyn; Bielefelder Kunstverein, Germany; and Konstforeningen Aura, Sweden, among others. Shecter was included in the 2012 Queens International at the Queens Museum of Art, NY. His work has been reviewed and featured in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Time Out magazine, among others.
