Lindsey White has long engaged with the curious (and insular) worlds of professional and amateur magicians, comedians and other on-stage personalities. In her hands, jokes and gestures, props and scenarios become focused object-lessons on both the value of humor and the gender dynamics within different artistic circles. In this show of all-new photographs and sculptures, White reimagines existing archival photographs, further engaging with the ways the histories of these scenes are preserved—or constructed.
Lindsey White’s ‘How to Get on Cable Television’ is on view at Casemore Kirkeby Gallery (1275 Minnesota St., San Francisco) Sept. 17–Oct. 30.
