Institution: 
Mount Holyoke College
This course will survey the rise of the motion picture as both subject and mode in art since 1960. The development of video art, from monitor and installation to projection and flat screen, opened up new channels for performance and sculpture. But the rising presence of 16mm film in galleries (Tacita Dean) as celluloid disappears from movie theaters amplifies a trend that also includes artists as feature filmmakers (Julian Schnabel and Cindy Sherman), Christian Marclay's use of cinema's past in The Clock (2010), and Matthew Barney's reliance on the Guggenheim as set and cinematheque.
