Joan Jonas

Join pioneering multi-media performance artist Joan Jonas for this screening and discussion of her videos and film collages.

During the 1960s Jonas was one of the key figures in the radical shift of meaning from the discrete object to the viewer in space. Throughout her career, the moving image has linked the richly varied, labyrinthine spaces of her work. From her earliest, face-to-face confrontations with video as a mirroring device, to her densely collaged narrative texts, Jonas herself always appears as a performer, confronting the viewer in an enigmatic theatre of self-discovery. Her formal construction of interior and exterior space in relation to live and filmed movement has maintained Jonas' position as one of the most important and influential artists working today.
