SAINT LOUIS, MO.- The Saint Louis Art Museum presents its latest New Media Series installation, Teresa Hubbard/Alexander Birchler: Single Wide. The video will be on view in Gallery 301 through March 25, 2012.

Hubbard and Birchler’s Single Wide (2002) is a gripping yet deliberately enigmatic six-minute story. Shot on a meticulously staged set, the film offers a glimpse into the tormented life of a young woman living in a trailer home. Single Wide features a highly constructed setting in which detail and ambiguity are skillfully juxtaposed, with numerous clues but no complete answers. Hubbard and Birchler are best known for such narrative complexity, further heightened by their characteristic use of seamless looping.

Shot in 2002, Single Wide premiered in the United States in 2004 at the Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria, is presented at the Saint Louis Art Museum for the first time as a fully remastered, high-definition video installation. Hubbard (born in Ireland in 1965) and Birchler (born in Switzerland in 1962) have been collaborating in video and photography for over two decades and have shown internationally at venues such as the Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; the Tate Liverpool; the Reina Sofía Museum, Madrid; and the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo. Both artists live and work in Austin, Texas.

Curated by Tricia Y. Paik, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, Teresa Hubbard/Alexander Birchler: Single Wide is on view in Gallery 301 from January 13 through March 25, 2012. This New Media Series installation is presented in conjunction with the exhibition An Orchestrated Vision: The Theater of Contemporary Photography, on view in the Main Exhibition Galleries from February 19 through May 13, 2012, in which two photographs by Hubbard and Birchler are featured.

In conjunction with An Orchestrated Vision, Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler will visit St. Louis to present a lecture and discuss their collaborations in video, photography and sculpture. The free lecture and conversation, “The Photography and Video of Hubbard/Birchler,” will be held on Tuesday, March 20, at Steinberg Hall on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
