Sara Cwynar, Tracy (Gold Circle), 2017. Dye sublimation print on aluminum, 30 x 38 in. Milwaukee Art Museum, purchase, with funds from the Ralph and Cora Oberndorfer Family Trust, M2017.18.
Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Sara Cwynar (b. 1985) explores through film and photography the subjects of color and design, the ways that they operate politically, socially, and historically, particularly in the context of how we conceptualize beauty. This first US solo museum exhibition for the artist presents three of her latest films—Soft Film (2016), Rose Gold (2017), and Cover Girl (2018)—together with photographs from her ongoing Tracy series.
