    SculptureCenter is pleased to present Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1974–1995 featuring works by Dara Birnbaum, Ernst Caramelle, Takahiko Iimura, Shigeko Kubota, Mary Lucier, Muntadas, Tony Oursler, Nam June Paik, Friederike Pezold, Diana Thater, and Maria Vedder.

    The exhibition explores the connections between our current moment and the point just before video art was transformed dramatically by the entry of large-scale, cinematic installation into the gallery space. The exhibition will present a reevaluation of monitor-based sculpture since the mid-1970s with a tightly focused survey of works that have been rarely seen in the last twenty years, presenting both canonical artists and figures little known in the United States. Join us for the Opening Reception on Sunday, September 16, 5-7pm. The exhibition will be on view through December 17, 2018.

    Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1974-1995 is organized by Henriette Huldisch, Director of Exhibitions and Curator, MIT List Visual Arts Center. The presentation at SculptureCenter is organized by SculptureCenter Executive Director and Chief Curator, Mary Ceruti. This event is open to the public, no RSVP is required.
