MoMA QNS Video Installations

June 29, 2002–September 27, 2004

The Department of Film and Media presents an ongoing series of projected works in the MoMA QNS lobby. The current cycle includes four performance-based works. Coming Up for Air by Carrie Mae Weems (2003) depicts a young girl's slow dance. Selected Works (1995–2002) by John Wood and Paul Harrison are humorous short-action videos that combine simple laws of gravity and physics. Paint on Trucks in a World in Need of Love (2001–02) by David Ellis (of the Barnstormers) is a live animation of the artist painting a truck in a graffiti-inspired style. Moby Dick (1999) by Guy Ben-Ner is a re-enactment of the story of Moby Dick by the artist and his daughter, made in their home kitchen using household props and low-tech visual effects.

Organized by the Department of Film and Media.
