Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is presenting a solo exhibition by the artist Cory Arcangel, born in Buffalo (USA) in 1978. Arcangel has built up an international reputation since the early 2000s with his innovative performances, videos and computer-generated projects. Arcangel is now considered a pioneer of a generation of artists who have devoted themselves to the archaeology of (computer) technologies. The presentation of the already legendary installation Super Mario Clouds (2002-) in the opening exhibition of the new Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (USA), America Is Hard to See, underlines Arcangel’s position. The genealogy of iconic pop music hits, awareness of the historic character of (electronic) musical instruments, the archiving of music and the mutual permeation of the ‘pop’ and ‘classical’ spheres have become central to Arcangel’s work in recent years.
