Artists have been exploring the moving image since the invention of film in the 1890s. With the advent of video in the 1960s, new possibilities emerged—technical, as well as artistic. The innovations and experiments continue today. The themes and video art displayed in the gallery rotate regularly, so there is always something new to see.
The Krupp Gallery is one of eight contemporary galleries that opened in 2011 as part of the dynamic Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art. These galleries present innovative approaches to the exhibition of contemporary art within the context of the Museum’s encyclopedic collections, offering new perspectives and encouraging connections between art of the present and past.
