Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is pleased to announce the exhibition Suddenly This Summer featuring a weekly rotation of video works by twelve different artists on view from June 30th through August 7th.
Two single channel video works by two different artists will be on view each week. The works featured, most of which have never been shown in New York before, represent the wide variety of
contemporary video art production.
The works include live action street performance of Shaun Gladwell’s Storm Sequence (2000), the digital abstractions of a nature film in Escape Spirit VideoSlime (2007) by Takeshi Murata, and the eerie and melodramatic Sed de Infinito / Thirst for Infinity (2005) by Manu Arregui which combines narration with black and white still images and digital animation.
Other artists include: Pilar Albarracín, Burt Barr, Andrea Bowers, Mitch Epstein, Kota Ezawa, Lauren Kelley, Megan McLarney, Oscar Muñoz, and Kara Walker.
Also on view will be a selection of works by gallery artists.
