Stewart Uoo and Jana Euler are emblematic of an emerging group of artists whose work interrogates how the social, technological, cultural forces at work today shape the contemporary “self.” In this exhibition, Uoo’s dystopic cyborg-mannequins are juxtaposed with Euler’s multilayered figurative painting within an environment designed by Uoo. Seen together, the works suggest new ways of thinking about contemporary portraiture.
Stewart Uoo and Jana Euler: Outside Inside Sensibility is organized by curator Jay Sanders.
“This exhibition, in the Whitney’s lobby gallery, is a thriller—two young artists have stepped up to a larger platform and are clearing new, still-shadowy pathways for art. . . . it gives the impression of a museum in touch with art’s zeitgeist.”
