A site-specific installation and video piece by David Snyder. The show is curated by GAR in collaboration with Joshua Fischer of Rice Gallery in Houston. Via the gallery:For Me TV, for the Hammer Museum's "Made in LA" (2012), Snyder created a home's façade caught in state of mid-collapse. Inside the home, a chaotic plywood scaffolding housed Snyder's cacophonous, homemade videos that parodied mass media. For his recent installation Porous, Poor us, Por us (2016), Snyder took objects found in the streets of Los Angeles and displayed them in a network of stucco shelves that snaked through the gallery as recordings from art auctions played. His installation at GAR will take on the "kludge" of our current political climate.

We continue to share our lives and thoughts on the internet and spend more and more time staring at screens. How will this influence our future offspring and the evolution of our species?

David Snyder: Knock-off Oracle, Undecider's Anthem... And a Disaster, After

August 27 through November 5, 2016
A site-specific installation and video piece by David Snyder. The show is curated by GAR in collaboration with Joshua Fischer of Rice Gallery in Houston. Via the gallery:For Me TV, for the Hammer Museum's "Made in LA" (2012), Snyder created a home's façade caught in state of mid-collapse. Inside the home, a chaotic plywood scaffolding housed Snyder's cacophonous, homemade videos that parodied mass media. For his recent installation Porous, Poor us, Por us (2016), Snyder took objects found in the streets of Los Angeles and displayed them in a network of stucco shelves that snaked through the gallery as recordings from art auctions played. His installation at GAR will take on the "kludge" of our current political climate.
