16mm transferred to digital video, 6:43 minute loop, 2007

Commissioned for “50,000 Beds,” a joint exhibition by Artspace, Real Art Ways in Hartford and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, curated by Chris Doyle.  “McCabe” was shot on 16mm film and on location in a hotel room in Stamford, Connecticut.  It restages the first interior scene from Robert Altman’s 1971 film, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, recasting the 19th century prospectors of Altman’s "anti-western" as the Greenwich, Connecticut-area hedge fund “cowboys.”  By removing the scene from its original context and making strategic modifications, “McCabe” becomes a meditation on the iconic male fortune-seeker.
