Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Tonight we talk with video artist MARY ELLEN STROM and choreographer and performer ANN CARLSON about their collaborative performance videos now on view at the DECORDOVA MUSUEM AND SCULPTURE PARK in Lincoln. The show is titled CARLSON/STROM: NEW PERFORMANCE VIDEO and features a wide variety of the artists work including “Meadowlark” a fascinating deconstruction of a Frederick Remington work and “Madame 710” a complex and beautiful homage to Joseph Beuys that involves a live cow and a suit of dollars. All of the Carlson/Strom pieces are complex works involving movement and collaboration with everyone involved. Also in the studio tonight is Assistant Curator for the Decordova DINA DEITCH, who talks about the joys and challenges of showing complicated video works in a museum environment.
