Pamela Bass-Bookey and Harry Bookey Gallery / Richard Meier Building

Alex Prager creates new cinematic universes focused on intense emotion and epic themes such as obsession, disaster, and mortality. Her visually arresting and highly stylized art is influenced by classic cinema, fashion, and artists such as Cindy Sherman and William Eggleston. Starring French actress Judith Godreche and narrated by Gary Oldman, La Petite Mort presents a surreal and suspenseful exploration of love and death, rendered in the warm, bright tones of vintage Technicolor.

Single-channel 7: Journeys into Peripheral Worlds – Alex Prager / La Petite Mort is organized by Curator Laura Burkhalter.
