Sara Cwynar is a multimedia artist who lives in Brooklyn, New York. Primarily working in video and photography, Cwynar’s artworks evolve from a cyclical process of collecting, creating, and re-presenting both original and found visual material. Her luminous and iridescent collages allude to the staggering proliferation of images in contemporary visual culture. Outmoded technologies and studio tropes converge with digital artefacts and futuristic imagery, creating kaleidoscopic tableaus displaced in time.

Organized by Vancouver curator Jenn Jackson, Gilded Age II is Cwynar’s first solo exhibition on the West Coast. The exhibition features recent photographs and two videos, reflecting Cwynar’s interest in the enduring legacies of design and popular imagery in contemporary consciousness. Across Cwynar’s works, found photographs, everyday artefacts, illustrations, notes, and models unfold and challenge enduring systems of value and meaning.
