Cory Arcangel, Video Painting, 2008. Collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Cory Arcangel, who is included in “The Sports Show” at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Arcangel is best-known for his tweaks of video games and his media-based tricksterism.
Unlike a lot of video art, this piece is unique. See stills and more at Arcangel’s website. And wait, what’s that you’re saying… that Video Painting looked different when I posted it yesterday or earlier today? Yup, exactly. I’m also interested in how Arcangel’s Video Painting mines art history, such as Allan D’Arcangelo. On the show, Arcangel and I discuss how he accesses art history and other Buffaloans (like D’Arcangelo) in particular.
Last year the Whitney Museum of American Art hosted a show of new Arcangel work titled “Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools.” His work is in the collection of many museums, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
For the show’s second segment, I check in with the artist who held office hours in a former museum director’s office during her show. Zoe Strauss, whose exhibition “Ten Years” just closed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, explains how that unusual arrangement worked out. I wrote about my visit to her office here.
