In this exhibition, the moving image isn’t allocated to a static surface, time period, or cultural touchstone. It roves through the minds of emerging and established artists, iconic and archival reference points, and from screen sizes ranging from the palm of your hand to a wide white gallery wall. Since 2014, the Walker has curated existing works and commissioned 12 new ones to investigate the dynamic breadth and depth of film and video. Every seven weeks, the show changes. The works in this collection by artists including Bruce Conner, Marcel Broodthaers, Shahryar Nashat, and Moyra Davey course through sonic landscapes, politics, culture, and life reimagined.
