Steina of the Vasulkas

On Oct. 17, 2011 during a tour through the East, the legendary video artist Steina, known for her longtime collaborations as half of Steina and Woody Vasulka, a founder of the Kitchen Center in New York, a pioneer in both analog and digital video technologies, and a poet of the moving image whose influence stretches back decades and extends around the globe, visited the Clocktower Gallery to give a demonstration of her work over the decades. Her soundtracks and musical collaborators, here they include Tony Conrad and Joan LaBarbara, make for interesting listening between her commentary. The Vasulka Web site offers extensive documentation of all these works.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
