“California Video” runs from March 15 to June 8, 2008, at the GettyCenter in Los Angeles. I’ve taken a special interest in the exhibition because it was instigated by the Getty’s acquisition of the Long Beach Museum of Art’s video collection, which I managed in the mid-1990s as LBMA’s video archivist. The impressive show “reveals the variety of artistic experimentation that has occurred in the video medium throughout California over the last 40 years.” For my reflections on the opening, please see “Transforming California Video: A Change of Address.”
I have an interdisciplinary background in writing, communications, and the media arts. I explore media in transition, a range that encompasses film, video, print, digital arts, and the web. I'm interested in what artists and writers are doing and in what critics and scholars are saying. My current work focuses on personal and cultural memory.
