Artist Run New York: the Seventies

The exhibition looks at the vital role artists played in an artistic revolution that underscored multi-disciplinary collaborations that went beyond the visual arts to include performance, film, theatre, dance, writing and music.  The blurring of these lines served to influence the trajectories of each discipline for decades to come. The exhibition includes work by Trisha Brown, Tina Girouard, Philip Glass, Robert Grosvenor, Suzanne Harris, Jene Highstein, Nancy Holt, Joan Jonas, Richard Landry, Gordon Matta- Clark, Elizabeth Murray, Richard Nonas, Alan Saret, Keith Sonnier, John Torreano, Richard Tuttle, Lynn Umlauf, and Lawrence Weiner. PREMIERE SCREENING: Nancy Holt, Going Around in Circles, 1973 This film is one of Nancy Holt’s early video experiments, which explores perception and point of view. Through 5 holes that are repeatedly covered and then uncovered, 5 subjects are seen moving between different points, discussing their experiences as they follow Holt’s instructions. Join JPNF at 6pm on Thursday, March 9th for premiere screening and opening reception.
