Sara Cwynar, Tracy (Grid 1), 2017.
The work of Sara Cwynar explores the subjects of color and design, both in film and photography, and considers the ways they have operated politically, socially and historically, particularly in the context of how we conceptualize beauty. Her research-oriented films are meditations on the emotional impact of color, design and popular imagery, and their role in the manifestation of desire for objects and others. In her first US solo museum exhibition, Cwynar presents three of her latest films—Soft Film (2016), Rose Gold (2017), and Cover Girl (2018)—together with a suite of photographs from her ongoing Tracy series.
