Member Preview Day: Total Art

Join us for a special Member Preview Day as NMWA explores women artists being on the forefront of video.

Women artists around the world were pioneers of video art in the 1960s and 1970s. Today, to create immersive, experiential works, artists design elaborate stage sets, film at remote locations, incorporate digital technology and animation, and meticulously plan viewing spaces.

Total Art: Contemporary Video features works by Dara Birnbaum, Kimsooja, Mariko Mori, Mwangi Hutter, Alex Prager, Pipilotti Rist, Michal Rovner, Margaret Salmon, Eve Sussman/Rufus Corporation, and Janaina Tschäpe.

Free admission for members (with a current membership card) and one guest. Members receive double discounts (20%) in the Museum Shop and Mezzanine Café.
