Existential Virtuality, Dallas Medianale | McKinney Avenue Contemporary


On Saturday, February 28, 2015, the Dallas Medianale will present its grand finale at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, curated by Carolyn Sortor.

The program, titled Existential Virtuality, comprises two blocks – one of which will screen twice (yielding 3 screening start times) – comprising exciting, recent works by internationally-known artists.

The longer block comprises a number of shorter pieces, including the video that won Laure Prouvost the Turner Prize in 2013 and a piece by Cécile B. Evans just reviewed in this month’s ArtForum, among other works.  This block will screen twice, first at 5:45pm and then again at 8:15pm.

The shorter block consists of a single, 30-min. video by My Barbarian, which was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial and which will screen at 7:15pm.

The full line-up is provided below.  You can also find the updated programme here.
