A celebrated artist whose work spans sculpture, drawing, video, photography, dance, and performance, McNamara’s practice is embedded with wit and a strong historical consciousness. For "Before I Forgot Myself," the artist brings together a collection of his physical and video works from the past fifteen years. He describes the exhibition as a “hybrid between a retrospective and a garage sale.” McNamara will be on hand throughout the show’s run to answer questions and make deals with some savvy shoppers. An essay about the exhibition by Sarah Nicole Prickett is forthcoming.
