Final Contraction, 2012
Smack Mellon, NY
My role: Curator / Produced multimedia exhibition and managed installation and deinstallation.
Tamara Gayer reconfigures and translates the geometry of urban landscapes into an intricate vinyl installation for her window project The Final Contraction. Covering all 24 windows with various colors and textures of vinyl Gayer presents an alternate all-encompassing prismatic cityscape.
Tamara Gayer is an artist transfixed by the city. Suspended between the impulses of an image maker and a builder she creates work that mutates from drawing to installation to video. Born in NYC, Tamara Gayer grew up in Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv. She holds a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA from Hunter College. In New York her work has been show at Priska Juschka Fine Art, Foxy Production, Mixed Greens and Exit Art among others. She is represented in several prominent collections including the Museum of Modern Art, NY.
