Whatever you may call it the current installation Short Court by artist Jake Myers explores the interplay between player, spectatorship, and the specific spatial limitations found at ΜΕΣ(s)Α Project Space. While Myers’s video work, sculptures and installations are formally diverse they are strengthened and placed under his coinage and thematic concerns of Relational Athletics.
Jake Myers lives, works, and teaches in Chicago. Myers was a curator at the Pentagon Gallery in Chicago and has exhibited work at the Current Gallery in Baltimore, The Milk Factory Gallery in Chicago, and at Viracocha in San Francisco
