Playtime (5 May–11 August 2019) is a captivating critique of the influence of capital in the art world.
Playtime stars James Franco, Maggie Cheung, Colin Salmon, and auctioneer Simon de Pury, among others. The seemingly disparate narratives of five vignettes demonstrate the various levels at which the flow of money has an affect on the production, dealing, and collecting of contemporary art, and the lives impacted by the system. Playtime has been exhibited at Fort Mason, San Francisco (2017), Platform-L Contemporary Arts Center, Seoul (2017); and Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City (2016); among other venues around the globe.
A symposium dedicated to the artist's oeuvre, featuring screenings, talks, and panel discussions with historians, scholars and artists takes place on 18 May 2019.
