Gagosian Gallery Online is pleased to present, "This Must Be the .GIF," an exhibition of curated .gif animations by Brent Aldrich. The Indianapolis, IN based artist is best known for his public-oriented practice consisting of performed interventions by himself, collaborators, and objects which alter the spaces they inhabit. Community forming is central to the artist’s practice, and this exhibition of curated animations acknowledging authorship skews the relationship of artistic appropriation into one of artistic collaboration. The uniting theme between the animations represents the artist’s ongoing curiosity in geology and astronomy as they relate to our sense of place.
