    Curated by Iwona Blazwick, Anthony Spira, Julian Heynen, and Nathalie Ergino

    Roll up, roll up, and see backward-bicyclist Rodney Graham loop the loop in this extensive retrospective. Planned thematically rather than chronologically, the show takes a trip through nearly thirty years of work in various media—film, photography, sculpture, text-based and musical projects. And it is a trip: Proceedings start with a showing of Halcion Sleep, 1994, and end with The Phonokinetoscope, 2001, including footage of Graham dropping a tab of LSD. The Whitechapel’s Iwona Blazwick and Anthony Spira, K21’s Julian Heynen, and Marseilles MAC’s Nathalie Ergino join curatorial forces to keep things bowling along.
