Paul Pfeiffer is an artist known for his sophisticated use of digital technologies and new media. Using digital erasure, magnification, and repetition, Pfeiffer samples and retouches images and video footage from sporting events, concerts, game shows, and Hollywood films to enhance their psychological effects. By drawing attention to certain aspects of visual culture and concealing others, he underlines the spectacular nature of contemporary media and its consumption. Pfeiffer has had one-person exhibitions at Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2001); and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chicago (2003 and 2017–2018). He has presented work in major international exhibitions such as Seoul Mediacity Biennial (2022) and Toronto Biennial (2022), and his work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and Inhotim Museu de Arte Contemporanea, Inhotim, Brazil, among others.
