Sara Cwynar, Untitled, 2021


Image of Sara Cwynar, Untitled, 2021

Special limited edition print by artist Sara Cwynar to celebrate her Performa 2021 Biennial Commission. Cwynar creates visceral collages and installations by manipulating found imagery taken from advertising, art, fashion, design, and politics, to investigate how popular imagery infiltrates our consciousness, alongside our ever-changing ideals of beauty. Building on the legacy of the Pictures Generation, Cwynar’s use of mass-media imagery simultaneously critiques and celebrates the rapid flow and consumption of images in the digital age, to consider how this material invades our psyche, and structures our lives, both consciously and unconsciously.

Sara Cwynar was born in 1985 in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn. Recent solo exhibitions include: Glass Life, Foxy Production, New York; Source, Remai Modern, Saskatoon (2021); Gilded Age, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield (2019); Image Model Muse, Minneapolis Institute of Art, MN (2018); Soft Film, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2017).). Cwynar’s works are in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York ; Guggenheim, New York; SFMOMA, San Francisco; MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Fondazione Prada, Milan.
