Carnegie Museum of Art features video collection online for the first time
For the first time in its history, Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Art launched a new, online exhibition series dedicated to the museum’s film and video collection.
The program offers a new channel for local and global audiences to experience works previously only accessible in person.
The first offering is “Lake Valley,” an eight-minute video work by Rachel Rose that was lauded for its inclusion in the Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018, and the 2017 Venice Biennale. Rose mines themes and imagery from 19th- and 20th-century children’s literature to create a dream-like story about loneliness, imagination and longing for personal connection in the animated video.
It can be viewed at cmoa.org/exhi bition/rachel-rose/.
Future offerings will draw from the museum’s historically significant film and video collection, which is comprised of nearly 1,000 works.
