2-TIMES  Art
Alex Prager,
Play the Wind
@ Lehmann Maupin

Depicted from the
vantage point of
driving in the city,
Prager cultivates
a surreal sentiment
of passing moments
that feel like a
fabricated memory
or a dream...

1979, Los Angeles. 

‘Play the Wind’:
The photographs and
film presented in this
exhibition are a fresh
reflection on Prager’s
place of origin, site of
inspiration, and frequent
character—the city of
Los Angeles.

Prager’s perception
of Los Angeles is one
of the artifice and drama
befitting Hollywood,
with real world chaos
that overflows into sci-fi
dystopia and post-
apocalyptic dread
