Andrea Goldman at The Reading Room. Madness Q & A: The Watery Part of the World, a video and related work by Andrea Goldman will open at The Reading Room on Saturday, February 11. You’re invited to join us for the reception with the artist from 7 to 9 pm. The exhibition will continue through March 10 and can be seen by appointment.
Goldman creates videos, drawings and songs that enact dialogues between brilliant animals, canonical authors, children’s choirs, ideological bodies and other doppelgangers. Her characters use humor and dialogue to investigate and upset dichotomies. TRR will present a work that engages Melville’s Moby Dick, Foucault’s History of Madness, and a family vacation. Reason, history, philosophy, politics, medicine, and otherness are examined in a playful manner.
Goldman’s work has been shown at the 2011 Texas Biennial, 500X Gallery, Apex Art New York, Performing Arts Chicago, Swarm Gallery Oakland and in collaboration with the performance group Goat Island. She received an MFA from The Art Institute of Chicago and currently lives and works in New York City.
The Reading Room is a project space dedicated to the intersection of visual and text based culture.
