Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1974-1995

  • MIT List Visual Arts Center 20 Ames Street Boston, MA, 02124 United States (map)

Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1974-1995 shines a spotlight on a historical moment and a body of work in the history of media art that has been largely overlooked since its inception.  The exhibition explores the connections between our current moment and the point at which video art was transformed dramatically with the entry of large-scale, cinematic installation into the gallery space. This exhibition will present a re-evaluation of monitor-based sculpture since the 1970’s and serve as a tightly focused survey of works that have been rarely seen in the last twenty years. Artists in the exhibition include Dara Birnbaum, Takahiko Iimura, Shigeko Kubota, Mary Lucier, Muntadas, Nam June Paik, Tony Oursler, Diana Thater, Maria Vedder, and others
