Now Playing: Video 1999–2019

Feb 16 – Apr 28, 2019


To launch a year-long 20th anniversary celebration, SMoCA presents Now Playing: Video 1999–2019, an exhibition that samples the last 20 years of video art. As a former movie theater, the Museum embraces the chance to turn its entire exhibition space over to the moving image. Exploring the complexities of contemporary art and life, the works transform the Museum into a space that enables the viewer to get lost in time. The exhibition features the immersive sound and video installation of Shirin Neshat’s Turbulent (1998) and the largescale, multi-channel video Love Story (2016) by Candice Breitz that juxtaposes individual experiences of the worldwide refugee crisis with the power of celebrity appeal. Additional artists include: Mark Bradford, Petra Cortright, Song Dong, Kota Ezawa, Mads Lynnerup, Christian Marclay, Paul Pfeiffer, Aaron Rothman, Mika Rottenberg, and Diana Thater.
