The Baltimore Museum of Art has launch of a new microsite to house and make publicly accessible nearly all of the videos that had been installed for its major spring exhibition, Candice Breitz: Too Long, Didn’t Read, which closed several days after its opening in March in accordance with health and safety guidelines. The site features Breitz’s powerful multichannel videos TLDR (2017), which explores a series of global debates surrounding sex work, and Love Story (2016), which contrasts narrations of the experiences of six individuals impacted by the global refugee crisis. Together, the works frame critical questions about systems of privilege and the ways in which the 24-hour news cycle, social media, and celebrity culture shape our understanding of the world and who we believe and trust. To foster dialogue on these critical themes, the site also includes opportunities for viewers to upload brief videos that respond to the two questions, “Who do you listen to?” and “Why do they get your attention?” The audience-generated videos will also be viewable as an ongoing archive on the site at artbma.org/tldr.
