Jennifer and Kevin McCoy  Broker   (2016)

June 1, 2017-June 30, 2017    

 

With the election of President Trump in November, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy's new work Broker suddenly transformed from keen satire to something loaded with additional, unintended meanings. Set in a 77th-floor apartment in one of New York's many Trump Towers, Broker is a carefully framed study of a high-end real estate broker who represents the physical embodiment of luxury merchandising. As the broker ritualistically prepares the property for show, McCoy uses the apartment's sterile architecture to create an increasingly claustrophobic echo chamber of lifestyle messages which present an increasingly homogeneous, utopian world for those with the means to take part in it. Featuring music by Lori Scacco. (28 mins., video)
