Double Takes at MOCA Cleveland
Double Takes: Historic and Contemporary Film + Video is an eleven-month exhibition program presented in collaboration with MOCA Cleveland, during their 50th anniversary year. Each month, from October 2018 until September 2019, MOCA Cleveland will present a pairing of one seminal work of early video or film with a contemporary video work from KADIST’s international collection. The historical videos included in the series are made possible thanks to the generous support of the Video Data Bank, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The eleven historic, and eleven recent films and videos are thematically paired, at times for formal or conceptual resonance, and at other times as provocative counterpoints—highlighting relationships that range from the urgent to the absurd, spanning generations and borders.
Double Takes is organized by A. Will Brown, Assistant Curator, MOCA Cleveland and Joseph del Pesco, International Director, KADIST, with the support of Zachary Vanes, Video Data Bank, at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
