Art In America

Mary Lucier

at Lennon, Weinberg, Inc.,

514 West 25th Street, New York, NY 10001

At the heart of Mary Lucier's current show is the spellbinding 26-minute video Wisconsin Arc (2009-13). Nearly half of it is devoted to a looping, multiply layered slow-motion clip of three people walking along the shore of Lake Michigan on a gray day, set to a soundtrack based on a loop of a few seconds of a 1950s ballad. You won't want it to end.
