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.
