EXHIBITION OPENING: Appropriation / Collaboration: Christian Marclay / Harrell Fletcher & Miranda July

This exhibition will bring together two key works from different decades. First is the 1995 single channel video, Telephones, by Christian Marclay, a popular classic of appropriation art and found footage and the forerunner to his famous work, The Clock. Furthering Marclay's effective displacement of original contexts, the video is a specific translation of classic Hollywood movies into a different time-based narrative as a precursor to today's culture of YouTube remixes.

The second installation offers a unique display of all components from the participatory web-based platform Learning to Love You More by Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July, a project which ran from 2002 to 2009. The work staged a collaborative approach to art production characteristic of social practice and community engagement over the past decade, and involved more than 8,000 participants completing Fletcher and July's creative assignments, such as "Recreate this snapshot" or "Take a picture of your parents kissing."

The third season of UMMA's new media exhibitions is guest curated by Rudolf Frieling, Curator of Media Arts at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). Appropriation / Collaboration: Christian Marclay / Harrell Fletcher & Miranda July, is the last of three exhibitions presented in this series focusing on the notion of performativity in contemporary art. Most of the work on view is from SFMOMA's outstanding collection.

Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment and the University of Michigan Office of the Provost.
