Chewing Color, curated by Marilyn Minter. Works by Patty Chang, Kate Gilmore, and Marilyn Minter, presented by 44 1/2 for Creative Time and to be shown on MTV’s outdoor screen in Times Square during the month of April. Is this not the perfect context for these works? Further info from website below; I’ve added links to clips from two of the videos.
“At 44 1/2, Creative Timeâ€™s presentation of video art on MTVâ€™s outdoor, gilded screen located in the heart of New York Cityâ€™s Times Square, will showcase three works curated by artist Marilyn Minter, in a program entitled Chewing Color. The films include Patty Changâ€™s Fan Dance, Kate Gilmoreâ€™s Star Bright, Star Might, and Marilyn Minterâ€™s Green Pink Caviar. The works will be on view hourly between April 1 and 30.
Capturing the spirit of Minterâ€™s investigation into what she calls â€œthe pathology of glamourâ€ and her interest in the border between photorealism and abstraction, the work in Chewing Color strikes a delicate balance between beauty and disgust. The visually aggressive work will demand attention even amongst the bustle of Times Square, bringing the cutting edge of contemporary art to the neighborhood.”
