    Description

    William Wegman (b. 1943) is a pioneering video artist, photographer, painter and writer. Wegman’s work has been exhibited in museum and gallery shows internationally and is in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York; the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles; and numerous other institutions worldwide. In 2006, the New York Times art critic Roberta Smith wrote: “Mr. Wegman is one of the most important artists to emerge from the heady experiments of the 1970s.”



    The videos included in the new series 'Wait Wait' are prime examples of Wegman’s work. As Wegman videos often do, they begin with something familiar: in this case, an onscreen loading graphic. 'Wait Wait: Big Top' moves quickly, constantly spinning and challenging the limits of perspective: are the dogs getting smaller, or more distant? The videos that make up 'Wait Wait' easily find their place among Wegman’s classic works.
