Watch This! — Smithsonian American Art Museum 

NARRATOR: What happens when artists engage technology?


Experience a creative revolution in films, interactive installations, video games, and more at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Watch This! Revelations in Media Art presents pioneering and contemporary artworks that trace the evolution of a continuously emerging medium. The exhibition celebrates artists who are engaged in a creative revolution—one shaped as much by developments in science and technology as by style or medium—and explores the pervasive interdependence between technology and contemporary culture. The exhibition includes 44 objects from 1941 to 2013, which were acquired by the museum as part of its longstanding commitment to collecting and exhibiting media art.

On view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC from April 24, 2015 — September 7, 2015.
