Joan Jonas

Videos

Remai Modern presents video works by pioneering film and performance artist Joan Jonas. The acclaimed multimedia artist, now in her 80s, is known for her continuous and provocative experimentation with the interdisciplinary possibilities of art. Joan Jonas: Videos presents four of the artist’s works in film and video, ranging from early to recent works.


Beginning in the 1960s, Jonas used different artistic practices to investigate gender, narrative and space. She placed the notion of female subjectivity at the centre of her work, employing a complex linguistic repertoire that included gestures, storytelling and images in movement.


Her work continues to influence younger generations of artists as she finds new ways to respond to some of the most urgent questions of our time.

Artist

"Jonas is one of the most significant artists in the history of video and performance. Beginning in the 1960s, she placed female subjectivity at the center of her work, employing a complex linguistic repertoire including gestures, storytelling and images in movement. A tireless experimenter, Jonas explores the possibilities inherent to the interdisciplinary nature of art, a characteristic that has made her a point of reference for a young generation of artists, with whom she has established an intense and generous relationship of exchange." - Galleria Raffaella Cortese
