TONY 2012: Karen Brummund
Urban Video Project
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St.,
The Everson is I.M. Pei's first museum commission. His art museums are commonly seen as art objects for art objects. They are sculptures in the landscape. Shortly after the Everson, Pei built the Johnson Museum of Art in Ithaca. In this site-specific video installation, images of the form and materials of both art museums are projected onto the Everson Museum. The images capture the light, surfaces, and depth of the architecture. The video uses images from two different buildings, analyzing how Pei's ideas bridge individual communities. These disparate places are abstractly connected through the architect's development. The plaza is not only infused with the presence of the Pei's forms, but also the conversation that takes place through his practice.
This video by Karen Brummund is part of The Other New York: 2012, a community-wide, multi-venue biennial exhibition that is the result of a major collaboration among 14 art organizations in Syracuse. This ambitious project aims
to highlight the rich talent of artists across Upstate New York, with a special focus on Central New York.
Video projection begins at dusk.
