On Thursday, September 6th 2012 at 6pm, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts will present a survey of experimental video works in loop, curated by Jessica N. Bell and Terence Nance.
The first medium-specific exhibition of its kind at MoCADA, this selection of new works will include short looped sound and video installations, as well as weekly screenings of feature length work within the main gallery space.
loop will feature the works of acclaimed artists Mendi + Keith Obadike and Kevin Jerome Everson, alongside emerging artists Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, O'Neil Lawrence, Legacy Russell, and Wilmer Wilson IV. These single and multiple channel video works and soundscapes rely on the recurrence of visual and sonic themes to explore contemporary social, political and aesthetic concerns. The larger project of loop, is to examine the role of video in our current moment of cultural production and contemporary art practice.
Films screened each Thursday throughout the duration of the exhibition include the groundbreaking oeuvres of Sun Ra and Edward Bland, Space Is The Place and The Cry of Jazz, respectively. Other contemporary works to be featured include Kevin Jerome Everson’s The Age of Golden Fish and Pocas Pascoal’s All Is Well.
