Film Series "This Way Out" Video Selections from APT
Wednesday, February 10 2010
Artist Pension Trust® (APT) is pleased to announce a special screening of selected videobased artworks from the APT collection on February 10th, 2010. In conjunction with Never Records and No Longer Empty, this event will accompany the exhibition Never Can Say Goodbye, currently on view in the legendary Tower Records storefront in Downtown Manhattan.
This selection of artworks, curated by Lauren Rosati (Assistant Curator at Exit Art), considers the way in which music videos have influenced contemporary video art. The artists in this screening reference the formats and styles of music videos by creating “documentaries” about music icons, upending the notion of the rock concert, and utilizing sound and video collage. Indebted to the emergence of MTV, and the subsequent proliferation of the music video, these works present a way out of the television box— referencing and refashioning its influence for a new generation.
