Medley
Kota Ezawa, 2000-2005
May 1, 2009–May 31, 2009
Medley, specially created by Kota Ezawa for this program, mixes a number of his works.

Iconic events from film and television are redrawn as simple animations in these works to explore ideas of representation and the media's role in shaping our collective memory. Works include The Simpson Verdict (2002); Who's Afraid of Black, White and Grey (2003); Lennon, Sontag, Beuys (2004); and The Unbearable Lightness of Being (2005). Born in Cologne, Germany, Ezawa is now based in San Francisco. (program 12 mins., video)
