Keren Cytter is best recognized for her experimental video works that illuminate both the realms of the interpersonal and the private spheres. The works of Keren Cytter are often based on templates of literary or cinematic classics, while simultaneously they reflect the influence of the media. She recently had a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. The drawings from this exhibition will be shown at ABContemporary in November.
