Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers
UNITED STATES
LONG ISLAND CITY  •  MoMA PS1  •  23 October 2016 - 5 March 2017
 

MoMA PS1 will present the first comprehensive U.S. survey of the pioneering British artist Mark Leckey and the largest exhibition of his work to date. His art has addressed the radical effect of technology on popular culture, and given form to the transition from analog to digital culture, powerfully influencing younger generations of artists. The exhibition brings together major bodies of Leckey’s work, including a broad array of video works and sculptural installations alongside new pieces made specifically for the exhibition.

Among the highlights of Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers is Leckey’s breakthrough film Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999), which uses sampled footage to trace dance subcultures in British nightclubs from the 1970s to 1990s; a selection of the artist’s Sound System sculptures (2001–2012), functioning stacks of audio speakers that recall those used in street parties in London; his pedagogical lecture performances; GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction (2010), a video and installation that considers “smart” objects and our increasingly technological environment; and a new iteration of the installation UniAddDumThs (2014), which Leckey created as a “copy” of a touring exhibition, The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things, that he had curated the year before. The exhibition also features a newly expanded presentation of Dream English Kid 1964–1999 AD (2015), an autobiography told through what the artist calls "found memories" that have been compiled from sources like archival television clips, YouTube videos, and eBay ephemera, as well as meticulous reconstructions of specific memories using props and models.
