"Total Art: Contemporary Video"
  • "Total Art: Contemporary Video"

    Event

    Featuring works by Israeli artist Michal Rovner

    Women artists around the world were pioneers of video art in the 1960s and 1970s. Early videos were often recordings of performances or single-channel shorts that critiqued mainstream media. Video artists today are attuned to popular media formats rather than critical of them. To create immersive, experiential works, artists design elaborate stage sets, film at remote locations, incorporate digital technology and animation, and meticulously plan viewing spaces.

    Featuring recently acquired works in NMWA’s collection as well as loans from private and public collections, Total Art highlights the inventive processes that sustain women artists’ position at the forefront of video. Total Art reflects the continued global scope of video.

    The exhibition features works by Dara Birnbaum, Kimsooja, Mariko Mori, Mwangi Hutter, Alex Prager, Pipilotti Rist, Michal Rovner, Margaret Salmon, Eve Sussman/Rufus Corporation, and Janaina Tschäpe.
