Today on Leonard Lopate at Large, Peter Campus, Cristin Tierney and Noam M. Elcott discuss the rise of video art, and what role Peter has played in its transformation to one of the major artistic disciplines of our time.
Born in 1937 in New York City, Peter Campus is a seminal artist in the fields of new media and video art.
Peter’s work is a part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Tate Modern. In his recent digital video work, he transforms footage of landscapes and interiors into painterly scenes, using sophisticated digital techniques.
Cristin Tierney opened her eponymous art gallery in New York City in 2010, following a long career with Christie’s Auction House.
Noam M. Elcott is the chair of art humanities in the art history department at Columbia University and the author of “Artificial Darkness: An Obscure History of Modern Art and Media.”
