Canadian-born artist Micah Lexier will present a selection of works from the past five years consisting of two related series: the Life Expectancy series and the newer Age in Years series. Lexier's work examines the quantification of human experience in temporal terms, incorporating a range of media including pencil, perforated lines, and geometric wooden objects. Through indexical units of measure such as years, Lexier's work questions the notion of measurement itself. Micah Lexier is living in New York City, and has exhibited extensively throughout North America. The exhibition is made possible with a major grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
