Videodrome II

  • Jun 20, 2004 – Sep 12, 2004

This summer, the Weatherspoon presents a traveling video exhibition from the New Museum of Contemporary Art. In the spirit of David Cronenberg's 1983 cult classic film of the same name, Videodrome II acknowledges video's role as a primary medium within the production of contemporary art.

The twenty-seven titles selected incorporate new works by emerging artists, artists not known for their work in video, and artists working outside the United States. Although their approaches vary widely, together the artists contributed to an overall investigation of techniques addressed in video today, with particular attention paid to how technological capabilities within the medium are used to underscore conceptual ideas. Videodrome II was organized by the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York and is made possibe by the generous support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Jerome Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts.

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
