Harris Lieberman is pleased to announce “People on Sunday,” an exhibition by Berlin-based artist Matt Saunders. Saunders will exhibit a selection of new works related to his recent show at the Renaissance Society in Chicago. As he continues to build a private canon of interwoven images from film and historical sources, the artist has expanded and deepened his border- crossing materiality, walking a line between still and moving image, between photographic and painted pictures.

In the project room, an exhibition of new work by Hurray (Richard Aldrich, Josh Brand, Peter Mandradjieff, Zak Prekop) will be on view. Filmed between 2002 and 2006 on black and white, color and expired super 8 film, “The Art Of The Hurrays” is an informal “behind the scenes” 16mm portrait of the band. The film captures the group practicing guitar, arranging an installation of photographs and sculptures, hanging out, and examining the machinery used in the pressing of a record. As an accompaniment to the film, the band presents the sculpted head of a Skeksis, a fantasy race from the 1982 movie “The Dark Crystal.”
