The Everson Musem of Art’s commitment to video art began in 1971 with the launch of one of the first exhibition programs in the country to feature the work of artists working with video technology. Today, the Everson’s historic video art archive contains over 400 video tapes, 130 of which were conserved and digitized in the last few years.

Video in America features recently digitized works paired with contemporary videos in order to draw connections between video art being produced today and the influential, early work in the Everson’s collection. The videos exhibited at the Everson will change each month, focusing on a different region of the country and providing a snapshot of the ways in which artists use video today. This April, SPACES Executive + Artistic Director Christina Vassallo will present the cold mornings edge of the old viaduct at the Everson, including the work of Ohio-based artists Kelley O’Brien, Cameron Granger, and Rachel Yurkovich.

Concurrently, Love and Machines, curated for the Vault at SPACES by Everson's curator DJ Hellerman, presents work by two Syracuse-based artists, Rachel Fein-Smolinski and Tom Sherman, along with work by Juan Downey and Antoni Muntadas from the Everson’s Video Archive. Love and Machines explores each artist’s interest in the technology, surveillance, and power as well as the body, community, empathy, and love.
