After a few years of painting being the reigning genre in galleries, it looks like video art might finally be returning to the fore. This month three major artists are tackling video in their latest New York shows. French artist Michel Auder, once a Warhol Factory regular, will present recently rediscovered footage of friends from the 1960s that he digitalized and edited into a four-channel presentation for Martos Gallery. Christian Marclay is presenting a video installation at Paula Cooper Gallery, in which onomatopoeic words like beep or zoom enact their meaning on the gallery’s four walls. And Sue de Beer will premiere a semi-narrative short titled The Blue Lenses at Boesky East; shot between New York and Abu Dhabi, it touches on themes of globalization, while the transformed gallery space will be an echo of the film’s jewel-toned Middle Eastern atmosphere.
