We will revisit pioneering computer films alongside bleeding-edge experiments in moving images and interactivity. Works will range from iconic achievements in early video art to immersive performances with radical repurposing of obsolete video technology.
Artists will include Francis Alÿs, Kyle Evans + James Connolly/Cracked Ray Tube, Harun Farocki, Gary Hill, Owen Kydd, Liz Larsen/LZX Industries, Dani Leventhal, Jodie Mack, Bruce Nauman, Jennifer Reeder, Michael Robinson, William Sarradet, Lillian Schwartz, Joe Sola, Deborah Stratman, Stan Vanderbeek, and John + James Whitney, and many more.
