Gagosian recently launched an online exhibition of artists’ films titled “Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video.” The video works are being organized into a series of “chapters” with each installment lasting two weeks.

The first installment features six, diverse video works that explore various experiences of reality. The first series includes films by Taryn Simon and Richard Serra that portray unique methods to developing self-awareness, “either through interrogations of mass-media conventions or by staging actions that test the limits of the body,” said Gagosian in a statement.

In the next section, artists Douglas Gordon and Chris Burden immerse viewers into external surroundings and scenarios. Lastly, Damien Hirst and Adam McEwen each offer durational work that lay out procedures to “’drop out’ of the norms and confines structuring daily life,” the gallery added.

The ongoing exhibition will also include works by Theaster Gates, Carsten Höller, Harmony Korine, Vera Lutter, Man Ray, Nam June Paik, Sterling Ruby, Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra, and many more.

Head to Gagosian’s website to view the first chapter of films.

Elsewhere in art, a new study shows that 13% of museums worldwide may close permanently due to COVID-19.

#GagosianBroadcast: “Broadcast: Alternate Meanings in Film and Video” employs the innate immediacy of time-based art to spark reflection on the here and now. Looking to the late 1960s—a historical moment marked by deep uncertainty, social unrest, and radical transformation—“Broadcast” loosely adopts famed psychologist and countercultural icon Timothy Leary’s mantra “turn on, tune in, drop out” as a guide for negotiating our present moment. The opening chapter of the online exhibition features six artworks that, despite their varied inspirations and contexts, share a desire to explore differing experiences of reality. The series “turns on” with a video by Taryn Simon and a film by Richard Serra that present distinct approaches to developing self-awareness, either through interrogations of mass-media conventions or by staging actions that test the limits of the body. In the second section, Douglas Gordon and Chris Burden “tune in” to external surroundings and circumstances, whether one’s immediate environment or the thrall of broadcast television, respectively. Finally, Damien Hirst and Adam McEwen each present durational work that stages mechanisms to “drop out” of the norms and confines structuring daily life.
