Alternative Channels: New Media Art
Friday, September 18, 6:30-7:30 pm • Lecture hall
Dedicated to showcasing multimedia art, MMoCA’s Imprint Gallery opens with an exhibition of Kim Schoen’s video works, Have You Never Let Someone Else Be Strong? (2013) and The Second Oldest Amusement (2011). Michael Jay McClure will provide a brief overview of this genre and lead a conversation between Schoen and Cecelia Condit, whose compelling three-channel video installation,Within a Stone’s Throw, was featured in the museum’s State Street Gallery in 2012, along with her large-scale, digitally manipulated photographs.
Michael Jay McClure is associate professor of art history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he teaches the theory and history of modern and contemporary art, including new media. Kim Schoen’s experimental texts, photographs, and video installations explore aspects of consumer culture and the malleability of speech, among other subjects. Cecelia Condit’s work addresses the fears and displacement that exist between the self and society, and the self and the natural world. Condit is a professor in the Department of Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. $10 MMoCA Nights admission/ Free for members.
