Paul Wong Remastered

| Innis Town Hall

With the invention of low-cost and portable video equipment, artists of the ’60s and ’70s experimented with new video technologies in unrestricted and uninhibited ways. The immediacy and intimacy of the medium brought the focus to concept over product as artists began to see technology as an extension of the body. This selection presents three of Wong’s groundbreaking performances for the camera, along with the premiere of new works from his Unplugged series. Wong’s work continues to have 
a true appreciation for beauty of imperfections. The light buzz of the video sound, jerky handheld shots and in-camera edits all reveal a sort of de-romanticized rawness that is full of humanity.
