by Saelan Twerdy

C Magazine, Winter 2010, no. 108

The Musee d'art contemporain de Montreal sought to question and explore the relationship between video art and music videos through their Music Video show. The videos in the exhibition offered a crititical commentary on pop music and its relevance to audiences. In Rinike Dijkstra's Annemiek a teenager lip-synched to a Backstreet Boys song. This piece amomg several others, functioned as a critique on the impact of exploitation and moulding of young audiences.
