This exhibition, the latest presentation in the New Museum's 'Stowaways' series, will be the New York premier of Brian Bress's Status Report (2009). In Bress's low-tech video, humorous characters, all played by the artist, struggle with interpersonal relationships, the pursuit of intended goals, and the desire to communicate. Manipulating pictorial and sculptural conventions through fantastically hand-crafted sets and costumes that combine drawing, painting, and collage, Bress creates a disjunctive world where spaces of imagination and representation compete for equal footing. Brian Bress (b. 1975) lives and works in Los Angeles. His videos have been shown at ICA, Philadelphia; LAX Art, Los Angeles; Diverse Works, Houston; University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa; and Parrish Art Museum, South Hampton. His work was included in the comprehensive survey exhibition "California Video: Artists and Histories" presented at the Getty Museum in 2008. This is Bress's first New York museum presentation.
