Video Art progam at the New Museum
Feb 1-27, 2010
The New Museum
The H BOX program was initiated in 2006, directed by Benjamin Weil. Each year, four artists are invited to produce a single-channel work in video. A changing selection of eight to ten of those short films have been presented since the late fall of 2007 in a roaming screening hall designed by Paris-based architect/artist Didier Fiuza Faustino. Having launched at Centre Pompidou (Paris), H BOX has since travelled to such European museums as MUSAC, Leon, Spain; MUDAM, Luxembourg; and the Tate Modern in London; before arriving in Yokohama for the 2008 Triennale, and the United States in 2009 (Orange County Museum and Cinema Arts Festival Houston).
The New Museum’s “out-of-the box” presentation of H BOX marks the first time that all sixteen H BOX films will be presented together. There will be a short break at the middle of each screening session.
