Resolutions 3, a three-day symposium, brings together international media scholars, video artists, media activists, art professionals, students, and other interested parties in a series of roundtable discussions, workshops, screenings, and other presentations addressing notable aspects of contemporary video. The event aims to bring together participants involved in the Resolution 3 book, the Narrowcast: Reframing Global Video 1986/2008 exhibition, and local artists in a series of provocative, peer-to-peer exchanges.
Pitzer Art Galleries & LACE present Narrowcast: Reframing Global Video 1986/2008, curated by Pitzer Art Galleries Director/Curator Ciara Ennis and Associate Professor of Media Studies Ming-Yuen S. Ma. Narrowcast re-presents selected works from LACE’s seminal 1986 video exhibition Resolution: A Critique of Video Art and pairs them in compelling and unexpected ways with contemporary works, thus framing the medium’s brief history both formally and thematically. Resolution was one of the first exhibitions in the United States to embrace video as a serious art form and to discuss it in critical terms. Revisiting Resolution in relation to a number of exceptional contemporary video works demonstrates the influence that video art has had on artistic practice over the past two decades and testifies to the pivotal role and ubiquitous presence that the medium has in the contemporary global art world.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Pitzer College’s Media Studies program, Pitzer Art Galleries and LACE on the occasion of LACE’s thirtieth anniversary. For more information, visit Resolution 3 and Pitzer Art Galleries.
