Point of View

Oct 3, 2004–Feb 20, 2005 This is a past exhibition

Point of View is an innovative commissioning and publishing project designed to make video and film art more accessible, and to fully utilize the qualities inherent to the medium. For over 30 years, video and film art have challenged many of the conventions of the art world. From questions of reproduction to issues surrounding acquisition, video and film art have grown from marginalized forms of artistic production to material for mainstream filmmaking and music video production. The exhibition features new works by eleven leading artists representing different generations and cultural perspectives: Francis Alÿs, David Claerbout, Douglas Gordon, Gary Hill, Pierre Huyghe, Joan Jonas, Isaac Julien, William Kentridge, Paul McCarthy, Pipilotti Rist, and Anri Sala.

Point of View is produced by Bick Productions – Ilene Kurtz Kretzschmar and Caroline Bourgeois – and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
