Todd Schroeder, Fat Chance OM, (detail), 2018, acrylic on  canvas, 72″ x 67″

Schroeder’s exhibition comments on the paradoxical desire to escape our current political climate while also trying to mend it. His large and eye-altering canvases push the viewer to continuously find a new place to observe. Opposing the canvases are his New York Times series paintings which use the weekly Sunday New York Times as substrate. They are constantly delivering news to the masses, and Schroeder presents select pages to the viewer with layered grid patterned dots created by atomized acrylic paint.

Kevin Cooley, Smoke & Mirrors, (detail), 2018, multimedia installation

A time-based multimedia installation, Smoke & Mirrors physically manifests a frequent, and recurring, political dialogue taking place on Twitter. Each time a tweet containing the term ‘smoke and mirrors’ is posted online, billowing clouds of fog immediately stream through the gallery’s darkened and mirrored environment, obscuring one’s ability to see across the room. Appearing as white projected letters, the text of these tweets floats nebulously through the air onto the mist while also reflecting onto the surrounding mirrors. In addition to Cooley’s installation, Laney Contemporary will exhibit related photographs.
