As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Catch a landmark, early feminist video in The Box this month.
Long before Cindy Sherman's Film Stills and History Portraits there was Hermine Freed's Art Herstory. This classic of feminist video offers a humorous look at art history--in particular, the absence of women. Freed's work features the artist restaging and reinterpreting a series of famous paintings throughout history with herself taking the role of the model. The video was made through the TV Lab of Channel 13, a seminal workshop that allowed artists to experiment with broadcast-quality equipment and to create works that were radically different from other television programming of the time.
