Organized in conjunction with the exhibition In Collaboration: Early Works from the Media Arts Collection, this April Fool's Day video-art program showcases the absurdist and parodic critique artists employ in their deadpan investigations of perception and meaning. The selection includes 1970s comedic performance videos by John Baldessari, Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, Martha Rosler, and William Wegman, among others. Brace yourself for a glimpse of whom and what they captured.
