"Video Jam Presents Work by More than 50 Artists"
2001-07-14 until 2001-08-19
Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art
Lake Worth, FL, USA

PBICA will literally overflow with video monitors and projectors in every corner with this celebration of the vibrancy of international video art. More than 50 artists -- primarily from the United States, but also Argentina, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Sweden and Scotland -- will be represented in this media extravaganza.

The works included in Video Jam represent the eclectic spectrum of content and form being addressed by video artists today. Works by John Pilson, Phyllis Baldino, Darrin Martin and Torsten Zenas Burns, for example, reflect the perceived velocity of contemporary life. Works by Seoungho Cho and Will Rogan reflect upon nature, making use of video as an expressive tool with which to create poetic images -- just as with the stroke of a paintbrush.

Others, such as those by Les Leveque, Seth Price, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy appropriate images as part of an investigation of mass media, sometimes re-identifying familiar images to convey a social critique. All these artists recognize that they are participants in a larger common culture, and they have all determined to examine its character with a video camera.

The artists in Video Jam represent the newest generation of artists for whom digital technology has opened another chapter in the history of art. Hand-held cameras and new editing software have radically simplified the process of making art with the moving image. What has not changed, however, is the centrality of the idea. Simply having tools does not mean that what one does with them will be interesting. Solid ideas remain crucial to the making of art worthy of the viewers attention.
