Avant-garde art shaped the look and content of American television in its formative years from the 1940s through the mid-1970s, and in turn television introduced the public to the latest trends in art and design. Presenting more than 260 art objects and clips, Revolution of the Eye investigates how artists fascinated with this brash new medium and its technological possibilities contributed to network programs and design campaigns; appeared on television to promote modern art; and explored, critiqued, or absorbed the new medium in their work.
Revolution of the Eye is curated by Dr. Maurice Berger, Research Professor and Chief Curator, Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, UMBC.
