Lecture by Michael Snow
Linked with the American avant-garde in his beginnings, Michael Snow has had a personal, multidisciplinary career that has made him a referential figure within the visual arts and a pioneer in video art.
Michael Snow's work aims to challenge our automatic (default) approximation to the visible by using a composition strategy that threatens the tools we rely on to process what we perceive.
By defamiliarising the spectator with reality, the conventions of representation and reception may be re-examined. One could say that, in a way, Snow revolutionizes the perception of reality in the same way that modern artists revolutionized the perception of art.
Organized by the Àngels Barcelona gallery and presented by Jacinto Lageira
