An immersive, polyphonic show, presenting the work of twenty-one acclaimed artists and filmmakers who have shown video works at the New Museum in its ten years on the Bowery.

Bringing together an extraordinary group of works in video by today’s leading artists, “Strange Days” will consider how images shape memories while anticipating visions of what the future may hold. Weaving together reportage and lyricism, the works on view blend images and sound into polyphonic, dreamlike compositions.

 

Featured works in the exhibition will include Kahlil Joseph’s Fly Paper (2017), a deeply personal portrait of black cultural life in Harlem, which premiered at the New Museum in the fall of 2017; John Akomfrah’s Vertigo Sea (2015), an epic three-screen meditation on the ocean as an environmental, cultural, and historical force; Camille Henrot’s Grosse Fatigue (2013), in which a rapid succession and layering of images tells the story of creation; and Pipilotti Rist’s video and sound installation 4th Floor To Mildness(2016), a work that featured prominently in the artist’s celebrated 2016 New Museum exhibition. Many of the works will be having their debut presentation in the UK, including those by Joseph, Akomfrah, and Rist, along with Jonathas de Andrade’s O Peixe [The Fish] (2016), Hassan Khan’s Jewel (2010), and others.
