TCU Art Galleries Director, and Gallery Manager
The MFA Thesis Exhibition of TCU New Media Student Chris Wicker
Moudy Gallery, Texas Christian University
March 29 – April 5, 2021
Virtual Exhibition: Coming Soon
The Art Galleries at TCU presents Channel Drift, MFA Thesis Exhibition by Chris Wicker.Channel Drift will be on view at Moudy Gallery from March 29 – April 5, 2021, with an online gallery and other digital materials coming soon.
Channel Drift defines a response to an evolving relationship between Wicker and television. The works, while being sourced from imagery consumed during the early 2000s, deal with concepts such as nostalgia, trance, video consumption, and sensory bombardment. Through manipulating, stretching, layering, and repeating appropriated media, Wicker translates his viewing history into a hypnotizing experience for the viewer. While being influenced by said past viewing history, analogue media, and intellectual properties such as Power Rangers and NASCAR, Channel Drift provides insight on both past and contemporary media consumption through its use of culture jamming.
