Barbara London discusses her experiences and discoveries working in the Museum of Modern Art's video program, which she founded in 1974.

As associate curator in MoMA's media department, she has continued to lead the field as a prospector, scholar, and champion for video and new media artists. London’s recent programs at MoMA include Looking at Music, an exhibition and screening series on the prominent role music played in the advent of experimental media art from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, and Automatic Update, an exhibition and screening series on artists’ varying reactions to the fleeting nature of technological advances.

This program is part of the Reconfigured Vision: Technology Expanding Art Peripherals Lecture Series in which artists and curators discuss the ramifications and importance of imaging technology to art making.

Cosponsored by Ohio State's Department of Art and supported by the Battelle Endowment for Technology and Human Affairs.
