Joan Jonas: The Inner Worlds of Video
Join us for an engaging virtual screening and conversation with groundbreaking artist Joan Jonas. View “Left Side Right Side” (8:50 min, 1972) and  “Vertical Roll” (19:38 min, 1972), two of Jonas’s most iconic videos from the collections of the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Then enjoy a lively post-screening conversation with Jonas and curators Saisha Grayson (SAAM) and Charlotte Ickes (NPG). Learn more about how artists construct, inhabit, and internalize space using the video camera and Jonas’s five-decade-plus career creating some of contemporary art’s most important video, performance, and installation artworks.  
This program is part of  Viewfinder: Women’s Film and Video from the Smithsonian,  a monthly virtual film screening and conversation series sponsored by the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, Because of Her Story. This first sequence of selected works reflects on interiority—a particularly timely topic during this global pandemic.
