Opening at the end of October in New York's Whitney Museum of American Art is "Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016," a unique exhibition that explores the how technology has changed the moving image.
This fall, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016, a landmark exhibition that focuses on the ways in which technology has created new forms of immersive experience using the moving image. Artists have dismantled and reassembled the conventions of cinema—screen, projection, darkness—to create new readings of space, optical form, and time. The exhibition will fill the Museum’s 18,000-square-foot Neil Bluhm Family Galleries on the fifth floor, as well as the adjacent Kaufman Gallery, and will include a substantial film program in the Susan and John Hess Family Theater, and a series of expanded cinema events organized by Microscope Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn, in collaboration with the Whitney.
Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905-2016 is organized by Chrissie Iles, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator.
