This 5-day screening and performance series contemplates repetition and reiteration as precursors to a loss of control and the inevitability of chaos. The program considers varying conditions of surrender and mania in the obsessive fracturing of time and sound. Featuring established and contemporary artists, REPEAT REDUX presents daily screenings in the Whitney at Altria Gallery punctuated by two evening performances and special screenings in the Sculpture Court .

Organized by Whitney Museum at Altria's Howie Chen with Gabrielle Giattino and Jay Sanders.
