Since the video was all recorded in the Museum’s neighborhood, visitors can walk a few blocks to see the real life version of the construction site that the video has recorded. Video art is one of the least “used” or explored art mediums by and for young children, and the Museum took the initiative to showcase some video art in the gallery space for all to learn from and enjoy.
“It is exciting to bring an exhibit that is inspired by something we know children love such as construction sites, and to bring an art medium to our visitors that they might not see or interact with often,” said Alice Vogler, Arts Program Manager. “In addition, this installation of video art showcases the work of Andrew Neumann a great local Fort Point artist.”
Andrew works in a variety of media, including sculpture, film and video, and electronic/interactive music. His current body of work integrates analog and digital technologies with sculpture. In 2004 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship. He has recently had one-person shows at bitforms Gallery in Seoul, Korea, the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA, bitforms Gallery, NYC, and a solo show for the Boston Cyberarts Festival. His original artistic output consisted of single channel videos and films. He then moved on to integrate a variety of electronic and digital technologies into his 3D and sculptural work. His Bachelor of Science is from Emerson College. Neumann has taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Art Institute of Boston, and the Boston Film/Video Foundation.
The installation is scheduled to run March 19 - May 15, 2016.
