Gardar Eide Einarsson is the artist featured in the Modern’s first FOCUS exhibition of the 2009-2010 season, which opens December 13. This Tuesday Evening presentation offers insight into work described in the 2008 Whitney Biennial exhibition catalogue as, “Investigations into various forms of social transgression and arguments for political subversion.” Einarsson’s text-based works, coupled with graphics from various subcultures and other installation elements, evoke cerebral and visceral readings based on complex associations and what the artist calls a “new take on Minimalism,” in which he investigates the viewer’s physical relationship with the art.
