About the exhibition

“I didn’t see a major difference between a poem, a sculpture, a film, or a dance,” Joan Jonas has said. For more than five decades, Jonas’s multidisciplinary work has bridged and redefined boundaries between performance, video, drawing, sculpture, and installation. The most comprehensive retrospective of the artist’s work in the United States, Joan Jonas: Good Night Good Morning traces the full breadth of her career, from works that explore the encounter between performance and technology to recent installations about ecology and the landscape.

This channel highlights Jonas’s rich body of standalone videos spanning many decades, including influential works featuring the artist’s Organic Honey persona as well as more recent projects reflecting Jonas’s interests in storytelling, science fiction, and the natural world. View them online here through July 6, 2024.
