 - Artforum n° 61-09
A l'occasion de l'exposition « Signals: How Video Transformed the World » au MoMA, Artforum consacre un vaste dossier à l'art vidéo et aux nouveaux usages de l'écran par les artistes.
What was video art? On the occasion of "Signals: How Video Transformed the World," a major survey at New York's Museum of Modern Art (on view through July 8), Artforum considers a medium whose novelty—its "promise of the new," as Alex Kitnick writes—once electrified artists and theorists. Today, video has colonized every facet of life and demands new approaches. In the following pages, a group of distinguished contributors chronicle the ways artists have mobilized the screen, whether by wielding it as a weapon in an asymmetrical war with mass media, jamming its conventions to antagonize the banalities of content, or cultivating its capacities for liveness, immediacy, and feedback.
For the issue's keynote essay, Kitnick charts a genealogy of video art's elusive past and tenuous future, tracing artists' engagements with the ever-shifting target of the now. Three contributors examine video through the lens of recent exhibitions: Tina Rivers Ryan offers her take on "Signals"; Erika Balsom weighs in on "People Make Television" at London's Raven Row; and Anna Lovatt considers "I'll Be Your Mirror: Art and the Digital Screen" at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Finally, four artists—Seth Price, Martine Syms, Tiffany Sia, and Cory Arcangel—share video works that have shaped their practices.
Véritable institution fondée en 1962, Artforum, le magazine de référence de l'art contemporain sur la scène internationale, propose un discours critique de premier ordre sur la culture visuelle contemporaine et repère les artistes et les œuvres qui définissent les époques depuis plus de cinquante ans.
