To launch a yearlong 20th anniversary celebration, SMoCA premieres Now Playing: Video 1999-2019, an exhibition featuring video art sampled from the last 20 years. Works by 11 international artists temporarily transforms the Museum, a former movie theater, into a space dedicated to the moving image. The iconic survey marks the importance of video in contemporary art, and the social and political concerns that artists have addressed over the last two decades. Through various techniques, from animation and time-based performance, to largescale and immersive installations, the artists explore the complexity and beauty of contemporary art and life. Artists included in the exhibition: Mark Bradford, Candice Breitz, Petra Cortright, Song Dong, Kota Ezawa, Mads Lynnerup, Christian Marclay, Shirin Neshat, Aaron Rothman, Mika Rottenberg, and Diana Thater.
