The exhibition presents the work of twenty-one acclaimed artists and filmmakers who have shown video works at the New Museum in its ten years on the Bowery. “Strange Days” considers how images shape memories while anticipating visions of what the future may hold.
Featured works in the exhibition include Kahlil Joseph’s Fly Paper (2017), a deeply personal portrait of black cultural life in Harlem; John Akomfrah’s Vertigo Sea (2015), an epic three-screen meditation on the ocean as an environmental, cultural, and historical force; Camille Henrot’s Grosse Fatigue (2013), in which a rapid succession and layering of images tells the story of creation; and Pipilotti Rist’s video and sound installation 4th Floor To Mildness (2016).
