For his  first ever solo show in Los Angeles, American artist-filmmaker Andrew  Norman Wilson—named one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker Magazine—will  present a survey of recent video works, in which found and appropriated  sounds and songs accompany narratives of uniquely verbose and humorous  wordplay. Inspired by VH1 Storytellers,  the evening will feature six films broken up by brief discussions about  the way in which sound drives the production and perception of the  work.

Like a queered Michael Snow, [Wilson's films] somehow manage to be both hyper-formalist and viciously funny.

- Robert Barry, Art of the Working Class

Wilson’s  theatre of vision is so full of optical wonders and charged with  tension and anxiety that it’s hard to resist the lures of its digital  samsara.

- Barbara Casavecchia, Art Review

An atmospheric standout of Sundance and NYFF, Andrew Norman Wilson’s In the Air Tonight unfurls a ghost story beneath the night skies of Michael Mann’s Los Angeles.

- Chloe Lizotte, Le Cinéma Club

[Wilson's] videos  and installations address a heady rush of images, technology, and  bodies caught in the streams of circulation and representation that our  era demands.

- Paige K. Bradley, Artforum

With In the Air Tonight,  [Wilson] catalyzes the entrancing affects of pop music and Hollywood  thrillers, repurposing their ready-made power to highlight the emotional  susceptibility of consumers who long to be transported.

- Aily Nash, Flash Art
