Machine Vision: Monitors and Space by Steina

View Upcoming Films

Streamed November 25 through December 1

This video program is a cross section of work by Steina and Woody Vasulka, spanning 30 years of their influential experiments with electronic media. The Vasulkas worked independently and in partnership at the intersection of video, multichannel video installation, and live performance from the mid-1960s until the early 2000s, freely pushing and investigating the possibilities of electronic signal processing and sound-image manipulation. Together they founded The Kitchen, a media theater in the Mercer Arts Center in Greenwich Village, for the purpose of fostering new-media art in a free and inclusive milieu.

In keeping with the National Gallery’s theme of focusing on women film and media artists this season, Machine Vision: Monitors and Space offers an overview of work usually credited to Steina. All videos are courtesy of Steina and BERG Contemporary, Iceland.
