Show Notes

This week on the show our guest is the one and only Barbara London. Since she began her career at MoMA in 1973 and collected the museum’s first video art in 1975, Barbara has had an immeasurable impact on the field of time-based media art – from her 1979 exhibition “Video from Tokyo to Fukui and Kyoto” to her phenomenal new book “Video art: the first fifty years”. Listen in on our conversation to hear Barbara’s story, and her relationships with artists such as Laurie Anderson, Joan Jonas, Nam June Paik, Teiji Furuhashi, Bill Viola, and more, that have formed the bedrock of her prolific curatorial practice.
