The gallery is pleased to present Shorts Maker & the Making of, a pair of video works by artist Ronnie Bass. Shorts Maker is a brief, open-ended narrative about a man who has thoroughly researched shorts and the making of shorts, and has decided to make his own pair by combining the best elements of all the shorts he has researched. He is driven by the anticipation of mysterious, and perhaps magical, visitors who will take Shorts Maker to a better place. Artist Jeremy Eilers plays Shorts Maker and the artist plays the voice of motivation. The Making of further demystifies the creative processes of both Shorts Maker and the artist.

The exhibition of Shorts Maker & the Making of at Horton Gallery / SUNDAY, Lower East Side coincides with its inclusion in Bunch Alliance and Dissolve organized by Public-Holiday Projects for the Contemporary Arts Center of Cincinnati and Dead Serious at Columbia University’s Leroy Neiman Gallery.
