Video Installation 1983: November 5-December 2

by Shelley Rice

Afterimage, Summer 1984, v. 12, no. 1 & 2

Rice describes the unique niche, potential, and diversity that video installation work holds within the artworld, while explaining its development alongside the practice of video art, stating that "the complexity of the video installation medium makes it eminently well-suited for exploring contemporary issues in a multi-faceted way unavailable to traditional art media." She uses the Video Installation 1983 catalogue as the basis of her argument.
