Material Apparatus

Material Apparatus
Cheekwood Museum of Art, Nashville
March 19 – September 18

Material Apparatus features videos from artists that use the medium in unexpected ways. These works go beyond using video to document a performance or to create a linear narrative. Video, in this case, is an actual element of the work, used as a tool to help create structural environments.

These artists approach this subject in different ways; humor, balance studies, sewing, drug addiction, and the use of BB guns. Artists include Maria Pithara, Jacob Tonski, William Lamson, Jill Wissmiller, Otto Berchem and Amelia Winger-Bearskin.
