Gallery Talks: The Artist Edition with Jon Kessler

December 3rd, 2010

Episode 26 of 192 episodes

January 31, 2007 3:30 p.m. In this series, artists whose work has been exhibited at MoMA lead Gallery Talks. While his early wall-mounted works read like animated paintings, Jon Kessler’s recent floor sculptures combine jerry-rigged mechanisms with surveillance cameras to create videos in real time. Kessler is an associate professor at Columbia University’s School of the Arts and has exhibited internationally, including a 1994 retrospective in Europe and a major exhibition of his mechanical video sculptures at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in 2005. NOTE: The recording only contains the introduction and part of the discussion of The Palace at 4 A.M.
