McEVOY Foundation for the Arts, San Francisco, CA, USA

Since the 1960s, artists have used video to both critique the medium of television and appropriate its strategies to explore new approaches to art, filmmaking, and performance. Introspections, curated by video and performance artist Mads Lynnerup, presents five short videos that satirize several key moments in the history of American TV and social media culture.

Presented in conjunction with True Blue Mirror: Ellen Berkenblit and Sarah Braman (February 8 – May 4, 2019), the works in Introspections amplify the exhibition’s themes of pop-culture assemblage, the representation and construction of identity, and the tension between the public and private spheres in the practice of making art.
