Jem Cohen/Kelly Reichardt
The Wexner Center's exhibition space for video, The Box features varied works shown in an intimate setting. The Box is located just across from the Wexner Center Store. Screenings 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.
