Sat, May 12, 2007Sun, Aug 12, 2007
Repeats every week every Sunday and every Tuesday and every Wednesday and every Thursday and every Friday and every Saturday until Sun Aug 12 2007 .

Robert Beck's drawings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and installations draw from personal experience and popular media and culture to form complex investigations of violence, sexuality, psychology, and masculinity. He's interested in the interactions of fact and fiction, memory and imagination, family relationships and ritual. This exhibition brings together work in a variety of media by the New York–based artist. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Organized by the Wexner Center and curated by Director of Media Arts Bill Horrigan.
