Total Art: Contemporary Video

June 6th, 2014 at 12:00 PM | $8-10 | reservations@nmwa.org | Tel: 202-783-7373 | Event Website

Early videos were often single-channel shorts, made with experimental techniques and political content that critiqued mainstream media. A half-century later, video artists are attuned to popular media formats rather than critical of them. To create immersive, experiential works, today’s artists design elaborate stage sets, film at remote locations, incorporate digital technology and animation, and meticulously plan viewing spaces.
