Joshua Hagler: The Imagined Chase


Bay Area artist Joshua Hagler discusses past and recent work focusing on key transitional moments in his practice. Known for his frenetic large-scale semi-figurative paintings, Hagler works in a variety of media including sculpture, installation and video/animation. Reflecting on major events such as a 2007 arson that claimed his apartment building and his subsequent search for and video collaboration with the arsonist, Hagler emphasizes the importance of searching while letting go of old ideas that have run their course.
