If you missed Hubbard/Birchler’s Eight, Eighteen at the Linda Pace Foundation in October, you’re in luck! The video exhibition will be opening on February 15 at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York City; so be sure to see it before heading out to Marfa for the artists’ upcoming exhibition Sound Speed Marker at Ballroom.

From our previous blog post about Eight, Eighteen:

Eight, Eighteen consists of two films: Eight from 2001, which revolves around the birthday of an eight-year-old girl and Eighteen (2013), which follows the same subject, only 10 years later on her 18th birthday. Due to video looping, changing locations, and the non-linear and disjointed narrative present in both films, the viewer is forced to question what is fact and what is fiction, leading one to examine the larger theme at the core of Hubbard/Birchler’s work: the subtleties found in cinema’s components and within its history.

Eight, Eighteen opens on February 15 and closes March 15, 2014 at Tanya Bonakdar in NYC.
Sound Speed Marker will premiere on February 28th and the installation will run until July 31st,
