Outer & Inner Space

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 

Newly published by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Outer & Inner Space, a book that explores how video art addresses the interplay between external reality and internal states of mind. The installation pieces of three young artists – Pipilotti Rist, Shirin Neshat, and Jane & Louise Wilson – are explored in reference to other pioneering video artists and to the field of art as a whole.

Each of the three sections spotlights a large piece by one of the three featured artists giving importance to the newcomers by comparing them to the works of those who preceeded them. Each of the three central works is illustrated with color plates and is supplemented by stills of the videos and installation images. They are followed by pictures and commentary on the works that form the frame for video art. The book includes essays by Laura Cottingham, Eleanor Heartney, Jonathan Knight Crary, and John Ravenal, the curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
