This catalogue accompanied the exhibition Ryan Trecartin Any Every, on view at MOCA PDC July 7, 2010- October 17, 2010
Any Ever was the American premiere of the artist Ryan Trecartin's (b. 1981, Webster, Tex.) 2007-10 body of work, produced in Miami with collaborator Lizzie Fitch and contributors ranging from friends and artists to working child actors. The entire exhibition space was devoted to the non-sequential series of seven movies, which were structurally conceived as a diptych consisting of a trilogy, Trill-ogy Comp (2009), and a quartet, Re'Search Wait'S (2009-10). The movies are interconnected spatially via networked viewing rooms and an ambient soundscape, and materially by characters, semblances of plot, and formal, recurring motifs. Having emerged from the 2000s as an innovator of ecstatic new frontiers in art and cinema, the influence of Trecartin's practice has grown within the art world and among a broader, intergenerational set of thinkers and cultural consumers. This series mines emergent evolutions of identity, narrative, language, and visual culture for content and propels these matters forward as expressive mediums, through darkly jubilant and categorically frenetic formal experimentations. Any Ever at MOCA is the exhibition's first American presentation on an international tour that began at The Power Plant in Toronto, Canada (March 2010). It continued to the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, FL, (2011) before traveling to further international venues.
