LACMA Exhibit Features Diana Thater’s Deconstructed Videos.
An exhibition opened this weekend at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) that was unusual for two reasons: the medium employed and the fact that it is the first significant U.S. retrospective focused on the artist’s work. The LACMA exhibition, Diana Thater: The Sympathetic Imagination features 25 years of her quirky, deconstructed video projects that primarily feature nature as their subject.
The Sympathetic Imagination includes 22 works from the early 1990s to some introduced this year. The immersive installation features rooms filled with projectors, multiple video monitors and players that surround visitors with the art. The exhibit, reportedly the museum’s largest solo exhibition ever for a woman, does require some effort on those who wish to see it in entirety. The pieces are installed in three different LACMA buildings.
