The Standard, Hollywood in collaboration with Art Production Fund present the installation of artist Casey Legler’s Untitled_Exercises. Legler’s work will remain on view from September through early 2015.
Casey Legler’s Untitled_Exercises, a digital video compilation, was initially created as a large format street video intervention in 2011. Legler’s work includes a series of five films speaking to, among other things, the question of the body as an object and the possible limits of its subsequent abstractions as a locus of agency.

The glass box behind the front desk houses a live model that coexists with the rotating exhibitions 24/7.
