Laura Parnes: Tour Without End

On the occasion of Laura Parnes’s exhibition Tour Without End, up through November 28th, Pioneer Works joins the artist in her Williamsburg studio and home for a behind-the-scenes look into her multi-platform, lens-based projects that craft darkly comedic narratives of trauma and repressed memory—often around mass-culture experiences and youthful rites of passage.

Her film Tour Without End, shot between 2014-2019, is no exception; it casts real-life musicians, artists, and actors as bands on tour, and expands into a cross-generational, Trump–era commentary on contemporary culture and politics. ♩
