Double Takes (Cleveland, United States)

Double Takes: Historic and Contemporary Film + Video is an eleven-month exhibition program presented in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (moCa), during their 50th anniversary year. Each month, from October 2018 until September 2019, moCa Cleveland will pair one seminal work of early video art 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.

Double Takes celebrates the increasingly important place of film and video in contemporary art, and the various medium-defining contributions by artists and collectives included in this exhibition program: Lynda Benglis, Adelita Husni-Bey, Dara Birnbaum, Jiwon Choi, Tony Cokes, Alex Da Corte, Elena Damiani, Harun Farocki, Simone Forti, Sky Hopinka, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Nina Könneman, Paul Kos, Cinthia Marcelle, Christian Marclay, Pedro Neves Marques, Rabih Mroué, Bruce Nauman, Martha Rosler, John Smith, The Propeller Group and SUPERFLEX, and Andy Warhol.
