b. 1979 in Las Vegas; lives and works in New York
Nate Lowman is at the Biennial to tell us about New York. This artist mingles the detritus of pop culture with that of everyday-speak, beaming smileys with magic tree-shaped air fresheners, and iconic images of blonde Mrs O.J. Simpson with those of Jim Morrison or Che Guevara. The upshot is a resounding, exhilarating reinterpretation of contemporary imagery.
