Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1974 -1 995 gleams a spotlight on a body of work in the history of video artwork that has been largely neglected since its inception while simultaneously locating it within the history of carve. Exploring the relationship between our current instant and the site at which video artwork was altered dramatically with the enter of large-scale, cinematic installation into the gallery seat, Before Projection presents a tightly focused sketch of monitor-based figure fixed between the mid-1 970 s and the mid-1 990 s.
From video art’s preludes, creators engaged with the sculptural owneds of the television set, as well as the possibilities afforded by juxtaposing numerous moving likeness. Before Projection focuses on the period after very early experimentation in video and before video art’s full arrival–coinciding with the wide-eyed availability of video jutting equipment–in galleries and museums alongside depicting and sculpture.
The exhibition features drive by Dara Birnbaum, Ernst Caramelle, Takahiko Iimura, Shigeko Kubota, Mary Lucier, Muntadas, Tony Oursler, Nam June Paik, Friederike Pezold, Diana Thater, and Maria Vedder.
