Having emerged from the 2000s as an innovator of ecstatic new frontiers in art and cinema, Trecartin’s influence has grown within the art world and among a broader, intergenerational set of thinkers and cultural consumers. Consistent with his work to date, Any Ever mines emergent evolutions of identity, narrative, language, and visual culture for content and propels these matters forward as expressive mediums, through darkly jubilant, frenetic formal experimentations. Trecartin’s distinctive cinematic language—and sculptural language developed through a close synergy with his primary collaborator, Lizzie Fitch—continues an important tradition of art that heralds, shapes, and challenges the defining technologies and cultural advances of an era.

Shot in Miami and made with contributors ranging from friends and artists to working child actors and reality television performers, Any Ever is structurally conceived as a diptych consisting of a trilogy, Trill-ogy Comp (2009), and a quartet, Re’Search Wait’S (2009–10). The seven, non-sequential movies are interconnected spatially via networked viewing rooms and an ambient soundscape, and materially by characters, semblances of plot, and recurring formal motifs.

Ryan Trecartin (American, b. 1981) lives and works in Los Angeles. Any Ever has been exhibited at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2010), and internationally at The Power Plant, Toronto (2010), and The Istanbul Modern (2011). It has been shown at numerous international biennials including the Singapore Biennial (2011), Gwangju Biennial (2010), Liverpool Biennial (2010) and Whitney Biennial (2006). Forthcoming presentations include Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (2011) and Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2011).
