Stan VanDerBeek

Stan VanDerBeek Poemfield (at The Box Sept. 13 - Oct. 25, 2014) was voted one of Glasstire's Top 5 Events of the week. 

"Back in 1968, film artist Stan VanDerBeek imagined he’d one day be able to pick up a telephone and make a movie over the wires. He was working with the artist-friendly telephone company Bell Laboratories at that point, and this show is all about the work he did with them."

Stan VanDerBeek’s Movie-Drome and more in NYC

Opening at the New Museum on July 18, 2012,Ghosts in the Machine surveys the constantly shifting relationship between humans, machines, and art. On view will be a reconstruction of Stan VanDerBeek’s Movie-Drome (1963–65), an immersive cinematic environment where the viewer is bathed in a constant stream of moving images, anticipating the fusion of information and the body, typical of the digital era. To coincide with the re-staging of VanDerBeek's Movie-Drome, American Contemporary will be exhibiting a series of writing, drawings and collages, curated in collaboration with Sara and Johannes VanDerBeek.
