For our first presentation in the ADAA Online Viewing Rooms, Altman Siegel is pleased to present a solo exhibition of important works by Matt Keegan. Matt Keegan’s interdisciplinary work explores the relationship between image, language, cognition and identity. Addressing the subjective nature of language, Keegan’s work examines the ways in which words and phrases are bound to specific cultural and historical circumstances but are always shifting along with our changing ideas and positions.

Matt Keegan lives and works in New York. He was subject of a solo exhibition at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA (2018), Participant Inc., New York, NY (2017); Grazer Kunstverein, Graz, Austria (with Kay Rosen); Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, TX (with Kay Rosen, both 2016). He has been included in notable recent group exhibitions including “The Artist’s Museum” at The ICA Boston, “The Sun Placed in the Abyss” at the Columbus Museum of Art, “Reconstructions: Recent Photographs and Video from the Met Collection,” The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and “Storylines: Contemporary Art at the Guggenheim,” The Guggenheim, New York. Keegan's first public sculpture, commissioned by Sculpture Center, NY was recently on view in Court Square Park, Long Island City. He is currently working on a book entitled 1996, which will be published by New York Consolidated.
