DECEMBER 21, 2010 – JANUARY 15, 2011

Third Eye/I is an exhibition of recent video work and photography. The title tropes the cinematic parlance for the camera, known as “third eye,” with the notion of third space articulated by geographer Edward Soja and theorist Homhi Bhaba. The video works are idiosyncratically installed using monitors and projectors, which envelop White Box’s entire lower floor exhibition space. The viewer walks into a house of mirrors where videos can be watched whether one looks across, down, up, or behind.

(Installment One) includes recent video works by South Asian artists from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Iran and Pakistan. Certain works are currently viewable in Women’s Voices Now’s Women’s Voices from the Muslim World: A Short-Film Festival.

(Installment Two) includes recent experimental video and photographic works by artists from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Iran, the Netherlands and the United States.

Please join us at the opening reception on December 24 from 3 to 5 pm. For further information contact Susie Lim at 212.714.2347 or press@whiteboxny.org
