Mary Lucier and Berta Sichel

As an in-depth contribution to the “contemporary archaeology of video” prompted by the Festival, this year’s edition of the Talks provided a current reading of early video art. Eminent pioneering artists conversed with curators of peer and younger generations, so to establish formal and conceptual connections between the past and present and explore the influence of avant-garde artistic proposals on contemporary production. 

In this talk, artist Mary Lucier and curator Berta Sichel (Director, Bureau Phi Art) discussed about Lucier’s work and her contributions to the form of multi-monitor, multi-channel video installation, touched upon the access to art for female artists back in the 1970s and the interface between video and painting, video and time.
