LIVE VIDEO @ OgilvyArt: An Exhibition of contemporary video art

Ogilvy & Mather New York is pleased to announce the opening of Live Video, an exhibition of contemporary video art co-curated by Jun Lee and the founders of the Moving Image Art Fair, Edward Winkleman and Murat Orozobekov.

Live Video will feature work by Broersen & Lukacs, Rob Carter, Oskar Dawicki, Jonathan Ehrenberg, Kristen Geisler, Claudia Hart, Hisao Ihara, Mary Lucier, Jacco Olivier, Hiraki Sawa, and Leslie Thornton.

Throughout human history, nature has held a special place in the hearts and minds of artists and audiences. Indeed, when viewing a completely abstract painting, many people still tend to describe the painting as a landscape. Live Video takes this as its launching point. Where previous generations would carry palettes and easels into nature to capture inspiration, today’s generation of artists frequently carry video cameras. Live Video brings together an international selection of artists working in video who have used its technical capabilities to capture nature and interpret it in amazing new ways.

In commenting on the show, Jun Lee said, “Video art has evolved into a unique tool for artists. In the wake of the video art of the past emerges work that has a new relationship to life and to aesthetics. Live Video presents a selection of works that feature technology as it touches life.”

“This is the fifth exhibition curated specifically for our office. It serves as a continuing reminder to our company of the ways in which creativity is forever changing and being expressed,” said Steve Simpson, Chief Creative Officer of Ogilvy & Mather North America.
