Tony Oursler 2015 at Lehmann Maupin, April 29 – June 14, 2015

“The artist has also long been fascinated with the intersection of contemporary human psychology and mankind’s increasingly refined imitative technologies. He has been particularly focused on how the human body uses its corporeal mechanisms, especially the face and head, to express identity and project emotions. The modern initiative to develop machines that interpret and measure those expressions is a central concern for Oursler. His interest in exploring how much, or how little, information is needed to discern emotion is integral to his work on the subject of mimetic devices and is a primary theme in his Lehmann Maupin show.”  Lehmann Maupin
