David Claerbout

MIT List Visual Arts Center
February 8-April 6, 2008

The List Visual Arts Center is collaborating with the Centre Pompidou in Paris and its Media Arts Curator, Christine Van Assche, to organize the first museum survey of the works of Belgian artist David Claerbout. Crossing fixed images with moving images, Claerbout reworks each pixilated fragment of an analog image to create new digital compositions. The exhibition, which is on view at the Centre Pompidou through January 7, 2008, is scheduled to travel to several other sites around the world, accompanied by a catalogue with texts by Françoise Parfait, author of Vidéo, un art contemporain; Raymond Bellour, a highly regarded French critic and author; and Dirk Snauwaert, director of the Wiels Contemporary Art Center in Brussels. Claerbout will be conducting an artist's residency at MIT, during which he will work with faculty and students on a new project (possibly a benign computer virus) and will give a public presentation.

The List Visual Arts Center is located at:
20 Ames Street (Building E15, Atrium level)
Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139
Tel: 617-253-4680

 

The Society of Friends of Belgium in America operates under the auspices of
