JEFF&GORDON
Play Against


On an elite squash court and desolate foreclosed properties in idyllic California, artists JEFF&GORDON explore the deeply ingrained values that underlie economic inequality in a culture of “winner take all.”

About the Artist

JEFF&GORDON is the collaboration of Los Angeles area artists Jeff Foye and Gordon Winiemko. In their video and performance based work, the artists examine the social customs and cultural idioms that are so much a part of the “air we breathe” that we often ignore how they shape our lives, for better or worse. Together they have exhibited at such venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, the UC Riverside Sweeney Art Gallery, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2012 they were awarded the Investing in Artists grant by the Center for Cultural Innovation.
