Cristin Tierney Gallery is pleased to present Midwest, an exhibition of recent digital projection works by Victor Burgin that focus on an oft-mythologized region of the United States. Understood by many to be representative of the larger nation, the Midwest is frequently on the lips and minds of politicians, pundits, and journalists during election cycles. Given the surreal and chaotic presidential politics of 2016, Burgin’s work offers us the opportunity to examine another part of the rich and complicated history of the heartland. Midwest will be on view from September 8th to October 22nd, with an opening reception on Thursday, September 8th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. This is Burgin’s first solo exhibition in New York since 2005, and he will be present at the reception.
