Gerard Byrne's multimedia works explore contemporary culture through the filter of the past, drawing from diverse art-historical and popular-media sources. In the video installation 1984 and Beyond (2005-2007), Byrne re-created a 1963 Playboy round-table discussion on the future, subbing 12 Dutch actors of varying competence for the 12 original science fiction writers. He has also re-staged a seminal 1964 radio interview with Minimalist artists such as Donald Judd and Frank Stella (A Thing Is A Hole In A Thing It Is Not, 2010).
