SPECTACLE: THE MUSIC VIDEO Museum Exhibit Opening March 3, 2012

Spectacle

The concept of Music Videos in a museum isn't as novel as it may sound — NYC's MOMA has done many video shows and curations over the years — but Spectacle: The Music Video is on an unprecedented scale.

Scheduled to open March 3 at Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center, Spectacle is more than a mere showcase, as it displays artifacts and artwork, while contextualizing some of the most groundbreaking and influential videos ever made in a unique, immersive environment.

On display will be:

  • The original, never-before-exhibited drawings by animation directors Michael Patterson and Candace Reckinger for A-Ha's "Take On Me" video, directed by Steve Barron; and a recreation of a set piece from the video.
  • A human-size Milky from Hammer & Tongs' Blur video "Coffee and TV," recreated especially for the exhibition 
  • Original art and objects from Björk's “Wanderlust,” directed by Encyclopedia Pictura, and a 3D screening room for viewing the video. 
  • OK Go jump suits and paint guns from the award-winning "This Too Shall Pass" video, co-directed by James Frost and the band.
  • Exclusive art photography from Floria Sigismondi, Stephane Sednaoui, Andreas Nilsson, Melodie McDaniel, Martin de Thurah, Arni & Kinski, Chris Milk shot on the sets of their videos. 

Spectacle is curated by Jonathan Wells and Meg Grey Wells of Flux and is scheduled to run through September.
