Introducing Virtual Views: Video Lives

This program of seven videos from MoMA’s collection considers how artists have responded to the invasion of the camera into intimate spaces of work and life, spanning early experiments from the 1970s by pioneering artists like Joan Jonas to a recent video opus by Martine Syms. In their work, these artists ask profound questions about who we are when we’re on camera, and what it means to make work in isolation through a medium that can be made instantly public. Today, when many of us are communicating on camera from our living rooms and bedrooms as we consider the social fabric and media structures that unite and divide us, the questions posed by these artists seem more vital and relevant than ever.
