ARTTALKS: KOTA EZAWA
EVOLUTION OF THE MUSIC VIDEO
ArtTalks: Kota Ezawa
Evolution of the Music Video
ArtTalks features notable local and visiting speakers through lectures, panels, and symposia. The events bring together artists, critics, curators, and other to discuss ideas related to Artpace exhibitions, current issued in contemporary art and in the culture at large.
In association with his current exhibition on view, San-Francisco based Kota Ezawa will give a presentation tracing the relationship of image to rhythm starting with early silent films, through the pinnacles of music video television, and into the post-MTV media-scape. Among the works to be discussed are films and videos by Nate Boyce, Bruce Conner, Rineke Dijkstra, Walt Disney, Anne McGuire, Name June Paik, Prince, and Hans Richter.
Born in Germany, Kota Ezawa began his undergraduate studies at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf. He first came to the US in 1994 on a scholarship from the German government to study at the San Francisco Art Institute, and ended up transferring to SFAI to finish his BFA. A graduate of Stanford University's prestigious art program in 2003, Ezawa animations continue his investigation both in to recent history, current events and how these two facets can play out in a contemporary art dialogue.
