The National Museum of Contemporary Art will inaugurate on July 13th at the exhibition hall The Factory of the Athens School of Fine Art a large scale exhibition under the title Videographies The Early Decades.

The exhibition will be presented in two cycles, from July 13th until September 4th and from October 3rd until December 31st 2005, and will include 80 representative single channel video works by some of the most important artists in the history of video art, such as:
Marina Abramovic Vito Acconci Lynda Benglis Joseph Beuys Dara Birnbaum Chris Burden Jean-Luc Godard Dan Graham Mona Hatoum Gary Hill Rebecca Horn Joan Jonas Bruce Nauman Dennis Oppenheim Tony Oursler Nam June Paik Martha Rosler Carolee Schneemann Bill Viola Robert Wilson

It is an encyclopedic exhibition, with works from the museums video art collection that offers the visitor a first complete presentation of the basic post-formalist trends of contemporary international art, which adopted this technological medium from the middle of the 60s until the 80s.

The works in the exhibition are organized in synoptic thematic nuclei which reveal historic movements such as Fluxus, feminist art, transculturality, deconstruction, a. o.

The exhibition will be framed by educational programs, lectures and discussions in which correlations, exchanges and cross sections with the Greek artistic reality of the same period will be examined.
