Adam Paul and Jerzy Rose are separate moving image artists whose work, although created almost 15 years apart, both trade in genre-play and themes of failed masculinity. Paul’s work, made primarily on film, and Rose’s video work both exhibit highly personal and imaginative visual worlds built informed by popular movie imagery. Both appear as characters in their own films and both flaunt a dark humorful satire of the Golden Age Hollywood genre hero. Paul graduated from the Univeristy of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Film department in 1997, Rose graduated School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007. Both artists will be premiering new work.
