This book is one I have been hoping to encounter for quite a while. It is rich in theoretical reflections as well as critical analyses of works, and makes a very strong case for a new form of art and a new form of cinema in one. It is theoretically complex and elegantly written.
Exhibiting Cinema in Contemporary Art is our first sustained critical history of one of the most important dimensions of contemporary art: the encounter of the cinema with the museum, the art gallery, and new practices of moving image installation. It is also a deep examination of the persistence of a certain memory of cinema that persists as a subject of critical re-examination by the most fascinating artists of our time. It is a path-breaking book that will long remain unsurpassable.
