John Gerrard, who creates virtual worlds in his game engine-based, politically resonant artworks, will present six wall-mounted simulations in his exhibition at Pace’s East Hampton gallery.

This presentation will coincide with Gerrard’s first exhibition with Pace in New York, on view at 510 West 25thStreet from June 28 to August 12. Among the generative works in the artist’s East Hampton presentation are Leaf Work(2020) and Corn Work (2020), both of which were commissioned by the Galway International Arts Festival, as well as the new Crystalline Work (2022), which features a robot arm arranging ice crystals as part of an examination of geo-engineering and climate change.

About the Artist

John Gerrard's innovative practice explores the divisions between portrait, landscape, and history painting, generating moving images that no longer belong to ‘time-based media.’ Gerrard rethinks the monumentalism of Land art in the age of Google Earth and explores an expanded arena of choreography and performance, keeping pace with the subtle complexity of its subject matter.
