Following Big Picture (Places/Projections) and Big Picture II (Time Zones), the subtitle of the third installment (Scenes) refers to narrative video and filmic works, performances, and theatrical presentations dating from the 1970s to the present.

Complementing one another in the presentation, which focuses on a dozen pieces, will be selected loans in conjunction with works from the permanent collection.
