New York City, NY
Bickerton’s vibrant and often dystopic vision of contemporary culture has been at the center of his three-decade-long practice, which includes painting, photography, sculpture, and every possible combination therein. The survey demonstrates the extraordinary visual range of Bickerton’s practice and his iconoclastic approach to self-portraiture, painting, and art history. Works from the early 1980s to present, including a new Wall-Wall work coming directly from the artist’s studio in Bali, continue Bickerton’s subversive critique of identity, consumerism, cultural artifice, and exoticism.
