Critical Writing Index

The resurging video, reclaimed and reoriented

by Roberta Smith

The New York Times, Feb. 21 Winter, 1997, v. 146, no. 50710, p. 21

A review of "Young and Restless", a video exhibition of emerging women artists at the Museum of Modern Art. The program comes across as vital and fresh, "in the process of being reclaimed and redefined with an energy unequaled since the early 1970's". This favourable review describes the program as "light, short and amusing", the artists using malleability of video art to their advantage.
