I Am Human And I Need to Be Loved
MonkeyTown - 58 N 3 St New York NY
8pm Friday 22 August 2008
Tomorrow at MonkeyTown curator Ruth Hege Halstensen presents I Am Human And I Need To Be Loved, a program of video self-portraits by five young Norwegian artists reflecting an emergent Noweigan "emo conceptualism." As the press release for the screening explains, tonight's program highlights a departure from a drier 90s Norwegian conceptualism and its theoretical underpinnings, and a move towards a more earnest, biographical, and self-involved mode of working.
