Microscope is pleased to present "positioning systems", an international program of mostly new and recent videos curated by artist Zach Nader featuring works by Mark Collop, Rick Silva, Tamara Johnson, Sara Ludy, Eric Shows, Andrew Deutsch & Stephen Vitiello, Joe Hamilton, Lisa McCarty, Nicholas O’Brien, Leah Beeferman, Eva Papamargariti, Tribble & Mancenido w/ John Dombroski, Lukas Marxt, Michelle Leftheris, Thomas Dexter, and Javier Bosques.

“How do you jump a fence you cannot see? To make a map is to chart a new version of the world and to outline new boundaries. These 17 videos are elaborate rituals wrapped in digital containers to outline places where knowledge and confusion coalesce. Like flashes of light into nothing, each one is an expansion on what can and cannot be known and how we might locate ourselves within an accelerating universe.” – Zach Nader

ZACH NADER is a Brooklyn-based artist originally from Dallas, Texas. His reworking of existing photographic imagery has been exhibited nationally and internationally including recently as part of a month-long nightly video installation on advertisement billboards as part of "Midnight Moment" in New York Times Square, "Breaking Ground: Contemporary Photography", College of William & Mary, inaugurating the University’s Department of Photography in 2014, and his 2015 solo exhibition “channel surf” at Microscope Gallery. He is a co-founder of the collaborative artist project "useful pictures", which highlights the work of artists who actively complicate the photographic alongside a culture of instant and global image sharing. Nader completed an Art & Science Residency this past fall at The Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation in Brooklyn, NY
