April 8 – 29, 2000
Artist Jason Meadows organized Tri-Annuale (Part 3): Pinwheel, incorporating work by three other young Los Angeles-based artists into a video sculpture.
Jason Meadows had invited Los Angeles-based artists Gregg Einhorn, Michele O’Marah, and Brent Petersen to present new work within the context of Pinwheel, a three-dimensional screen designed for the simultaneous projection of all three artists’ videos. Meadows’ installation design is based on his interest in exploring potential formats for the presentation of video. In particular, Meadows is interested in a formal exercise that reduces projected video to projected light, and how form and content — or medium and message — can be separated. In addition, the three artists whose work will be screened each use video in very different ways — as an extension of photography, as a vehicle for narrative storytelling, and as surreptitious documentary. This exhibition will be the final installment in our Tri-Annuale series.
