JEFF&GORDON: Play Against Exhibition at the UCR Sweeney Art Gallery

October 29, 2011 – December 10, 2011
Opening Reception: October 29, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM


UCR Sweeney Art Gallery


JEFF & GORDON are a collaborative team of artists who create videos and installations that explore social interactions. Jeff Foye and Gordon Winiemko create situations wherein an audience will reflect on their participatory role in the ever-changing cultural narrative; every one of us contributes to our collective culture, but at the same time we are all defined by culture. As such, their work frequently “takes on” the form of familiar social customs and iconography, and also enters into a dialogue with the site or the context in which the work is exhibited. The artists also forward their personae, and frequently mediate their performative actions through video, as informed by the cinematic aesthetic. The artists live and work in the Los Angeles area. Organized by UCR Sweeney Art Gallery, and curated by Jennifer Frias, associate curator, Sweeney Art Gallery.
