20 September - 3 Jan 2010

Curated by Elaine Berger

The museum’s Contemporary Gallery features the work of two important artists working today: Gordon Cheung and Jonathan Seliger. As a metaphor for the dominant global economic ideology, Cheung uses Financial Times stock listings as the ground in his multimedia images. His paintings are virtual-reality environments that comment on the ability of stock exchange numbers to deliver a “promised land” to people’s lives. Seliger works with paint and canvas to produce three-dimensional structures. His works are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Brooklyn Museum, among others. He has exhibited throughout this country and in Europe and Asia. The exhibition is organized by Elaine Berger for the museum’s Contemporary Collectors Circle.
