The Project, New York
In his sculptures, photographs, and videos, the New York-based artist Paul Pfeiffer considers the ways in which mass media and celebrity culture shape modern consciousness. He digitally manipulates imagery, often erasing elements from found sports footage, to investigate the impact of the spectacle on historical memory, race politics, and pop culture. Pfeiffer participated in the 49th Venice Biennale and was the first recipient of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Bucksbaum Award in 2000.
