Drunk on Virtue, 2007
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).
Check out the Box this month for a refreshing (no pun intended) look at the history of the child-run lemonade stand.
Hope Tucker, who is from Tennessee, uses stop-motion animation, super-8 film footage, and video to investigate the ubiquitous summertime icon as a window on the capitalistic impulse, industrialization, and America’s romance with the pastoral ideal. Tucker was recently an artist-in-residence in the center’s Art & Tech studios where she shot and edited parts of the video. (28 mins., video)
