William Wegman video works, 1970-1999.
N6537.W345W55 2006
Disc One Spit Sandwich (1970) (15 min.) -- Selected Works: Reel 1 (1970) (30 min.) -- Selected Works: Reel 2 (1972) (20 min.) -- Selected Works: Reel 3 (1973) (22 min.) -- Selected Works: Reel 4 (1973-1974) (21 min.) -- Selected Works: Reel 5 (1974-1975) (31 min.).
These discs present an archive of artist William Wegman's innovative, influential, and often hilarious performances, both with and without his Weimaraner friend, Man Ray. Inspired by the oblique humor of the 1950s comedians Bob and Ray and the atmosphere of experimentation in the art of the 1960s, reacting to the endless reductions of multiple -ism's sweeing through the art world, these pieces are a cross-over form of visual art that had almost no precedent and that received favorable critical notice from a wide audience of art lovers.
