Paul Thek: Interior / Landscape

Some of the work on view in the Watermill Center’s two-floor exhibition was previously on display at the Whitney, but many of his most important pieces are being shown for the first time. Paul Thek: Interior / Landscape shines a light on the fact that Thek was an avid draftsman.

AES+F, Inverso Mundus

The four-person artist collective AES+F creates universes that are as familiar as they are foreign and as appealing as they are grotesque. Having actively exhibited since solidifying as a collective in 1995, the Moscow-based Tatiana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovich, Evgeny Svyatsky, and Vladimir Fridkes use actors, models, and a narrative often rife with political and sexual innuendo in their work. They aggregate content for what ultimately results in an engaging, cinematic experience.
