Jem Cohen/Kelly Reichardt
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).
New works by acclaimed independent media artists Kelly Reichardt and Jem Cohen are on view throughout November.
Reichardt's Travis debuted at last year's New York Video Festival; it's a haunting, lyrical abstraction scored to an anguished woman's voice expressing anxiety and anger over a loved one being in harm's way. (2004; 11 mins.)
Cohen's latest begins with a suite of documentary images of train riders lost in sleep and dream, then transports viewers to a considerably more ominous urban site. Both artists worked on their pieces during residencies in the Wexner Center's Art & Technology studio.
