The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to launch a rotating program of video works with the exhibition of Robert Longo’s Icarus Rising (2019).

Since the 1980s, Robert Longo has created work across media including drawing, photography, painting, sculpture, music, performance, and film. Using a vast vocabulary of source images culled from the mainstream media, as well as from historical and art historical references, Longo’s work strikes a balance between the very personal and the socially charged. For Longo, art is a political act and represents a way to understand and to question the world around us.

In the black-and-white film, Icarus Rising (2019), the action of Longo tearing up photographs culled from the recent mainstream media is slowed down and amplified, creating an immersive experience. The video’s imposing scale, sound and speed force the viewer to fully consume and consider images that have been dominating the contemporary American news cycle.
