5 May 2017 Museum Exhibition

Transported Man includes Ceal Floyer, Ryan Gander, Christian Jankowski and Jonathan Monk, and is on view through 22 October at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University. The exhibition highlights a group of 50 renowned and emerging artists whose work relies on the notion of belief.

Inspired by a magic trick described in Christopher Priest’s 1995 novel The Prestige, The Transported Man exemplifies the three phases of a magic trick, wherein a magician appears onstage (the Pledge), disappears through a door (the Turn), and reappears immediately through another door (the Prestige).
