Omer Fast
JULY 22, 2008-JANUARY 4, 2009


Omer Fast's exhibition at MCA Denver showcased a video that moves through a kitchen, a bedroom and a living room in apartments of a Belgian building. Visitors were able to glimpse into the private lives of residents through a narrative that suggests the characters' interconnectedness. Seamless transitions in time and place explore how culture and media shape perceptions and memory. In his exhibition at MCA Denver, Fast raised questions about notions of truth and reality through his characters' social interactions, attitudes and habits.

Omer Fast was born in Jerusalem, Israel in 1972. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He holds a BA/BFA from Tufts University/School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA and an MFA from Hunter College of the City University of New York, NY. Selected exhibitions include the 2008 Whitney Biennial Exhibition, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Museum of Modern Art, Vienna, Austria and Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh, PA. Fast is the winner of the 2008 Bucksbaum Award.
