Centre Pompidou Video Art: 1965-2005
14 December 2006 - 25 February 2007
Discover how moving imagery has become ubiquitous in both contemporary art and our daily lives with this exhibition of video art drawn from the extensive collection of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
Tracing 40 years of practice, this exhibition allows visitors to walk through the history of video art from its first appearance in the 1960s to the current day. Curated by the Pompidou’s Curator of New Media, Christine Van Assche, this will be the first time a collection this size has been seen in Australia, taking up two floors of the MCA galleries. The exhibition has already toured to Barcelona, Taipei and Miami before arriving in Sydney.
Experience audiovisual installations, projections and works shown on monitors and be intrigued by the creations of over 25 renowned video artists from across the globe including Isaac Julien, Stan Douglas, Jean Luc Goddard, Samuel Beckett, Bill Viola, Pierre Huyghe and Tony Oursler.
