not strictly "video art" but hito steyerl is a leading light in moving image art nowadays, for better or worse:

Hito Steyerl - How Not to be Seen A Fucking Didactic Educational .MOV File 2013


Hito Steyerl - The Factory of the Sun - representing Venice Art Biennale 2015 German Pavilion -


installation views of Factory of the Sun:

if you like old fashioned experimental film, i recently saw and liked Rosebud, 2013, by James Richards. here is a really bad phone documentation [0:52], and interview w/ slightly better clips [start at 0:21], below :

Not to suggest that I think its current format is inappropriate or anything, I just have some weird kind of art book fetish.

you can see/buy virtually all of simon's works as books, actually -- the innocents, the birds of the west indies, etc. except for her piece about the new york public library and her moving image pieces, i think. her work is really wonderful, and she had a great show at jeu deu paume earlier this year: http://www.contemporaryartdaily.com/201 ... e-paume-2/

Also I chuckle while thinking about this Jamian painting from Flatlands at least three times a day.

Have any of the New Yorkers been to the Trecartin/Fitch show yet?

Didn't have enough time to sit with the videos, which seem to be doing some interesting new things with location and regionalism (though the only thing I've seen since Any Ever is Center Jenny, so this might not be so new), to have much of an opinion beyond loving how much of the Mark Trade character there is, but the presentation is so so good. The best way I could imagine watching their stuff.

Fitch's installations are still amazing. However, I keep having a harder and harder time getting past the racism and classism that is in the video work.
love you guys!

From what I saw, which was admittedly maybe a quarter of the material at most, the videos in this show seemed to have considerably less in the way of (post-)racial drag? And I saw the rural environments as less about class and more about the idea of nature as this space of authenticity and purity that's still a big part of the American cultural imagination (obviously class factors considerably in that, but I can't say I took away any of this as being hateful in that direction); I suppose I can see at least some connection here with all of those early aughts MTV cultural tourism series—True Life, Cribs, etc.—but I'd be interested to hear more about what you meant there, scurry.

these have a strange quality, vaguely revolting in a commercial high street gallery kind of way, yet i can't help finding them beautiful
