Posted on 26 January 2011

Istanbul Modern presents Ryan Trecartin, one of the most important video artists of the young generation with his work Any Ever (2009-2010).

The four videos on review merge sophisticated digital manipulations with footage from the internet and pop culture, animations, and wildly stylized sets and performances.

Ryan Trecartin (1981) from Texas  is an artist and filmmaker currently based in Los Angeles. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a BFA in 2004. Trecartin has since lived and worked in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Miami. In 2006, the Wall Street Journal included Trecartin in a selection of ten top emerging US artists.
