For his debut exhibition at Metro Pictures, Stephen G. Rhodes fills the gallery with labyrinthine installations composed of collages, sculptures, paintings, and videos — revolving around the 18th-century Prussian philosopher Immanuel Kant and the master-servant dialectic he shared with his steadfast servant Lampe — that are spatially choreographed across four walls.
Born in 1977, Stephen G. Rhodes lives and works in New York. He has recently had solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and galleries in Tokyo, Berlin, and London. His work has been included in PortugalArte 10 in Lisbon, Younger than Jesus at the New Museum in New York, and Prospect 1 in New Orleans. He is a graduate of Bard College in New York and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
