"Not Quite Myself Today: Video Works by Eight Artists"
2001-12-15 until 2002-03-03
ASU Art Museum
Tempe, AZ, USA

While the artists included in Not Quite Myself Today most definitely have a personal presence in their videos, their work is not synonymous with their true selves or with their chosen role as artists. Rather, their work reflects an interest in how perceptions about artists in general are formed - not only by others, but also by the individual artists themselves.

The works in the exhibition address the stereotypes, processes, development and struggles associated with being an artist in today's media-competitive world. They explore a variety of lingering questions with respect to artistic identity: Who am I?; how do others perceive me?; how did I get this way?; and who do I wish I could be?

The artists included in this exhibition are Alex Bag, S.E. Barnet, Sanford Biggers, Matt Marello, Jennifer Reeder, Guy Richards Smit, Jennifer Zackin. Kerry Tribe provided the original inspiration for this exhibition with her work Double.

Not Quite Myself Today is supported in part by Friends of the Arizona State University Art Museum.
