New Media Series—James Nares: Street
November 2, 2012–January 27, 2013

Filmed with high-speed recording technology, James Nares' video, Street (2012), slows down the tempo of real-time events to a fraction of their normal speed. Nares aims his camera at the everyday activities of a busy metropolis. Set to an acoustic guitar soundtrack by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, Street follows New York City residents, commuters, and tourists as they walk along sidewalks peppered with street performers and children at play

Curated by Tricia Y. Paik, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, Street will be on view in Gallery 301 from November 2, 2012 through January 27, 2013.
