Joan Jonas: Six Works

Apr 29–30, 2010


In the 1960s, both inspired by and part of an emerging practice that brought avant-garde practices to traditional performance mediums like dance, the New York–based media artist Joan Jonas began exploring time as a medium. This program, shown in conjunction with the artist’s installation Mirage, features films and videos that Jonas made between 1968 and 1976. All works are by Jonas and from the US.

Organized by Barbara London, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, in association with Electronic Arts Intermix.
