MEDIATED features new works and recently produced single-channel video and installations by interdisciplinary artists Antoinette LaFarge + Robert Allen, Lim, Kelly Mark, Tracey Moffatt, Takeshi Murata, Danial Nord, and Bruce Yonemoto. As video art has emerged and morphed from the early 1960's to the present, these artists continue to find innovative uses for information technology and media. From experimental theater to pulsating abstraction, MEDIATED splices together new and used imagery, addressing current social constructs as well as conflicting perceptions of entertainment. Elements of desire, seduction, destruction, and redemption are extracted from Hollywood and Internet source material to create new narratives, as well as sculpture and installation.
Additional events in association with MEDIATED will begin on February 5th and continue through March 12th, beginning with a screening curated by artist and UC Riverside lecturer, Hilja Keading. An art talk titled, Outside the Box: Video Gone Wild, by Danial Nord will take place on April 2nd from 7:45-8:30 PM and will be followed by a screening of Decline and Fall, a film by UC Riverside professor, Erika Suderburg on March 12th. Events and exhibition organized by Lisa Tucker, UCR/CMP Associate Curator.
