Fiona Tan: Correction at MCA Chicago
CHICAGO.- A newly-commissioned video installation by Fiona Tan is the first in a series of projects jointly developed by and presented at the MCA; The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; and the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, with the purpose of stimulating the creation of new work by artists not yet known in the United States. For her video installations, Tan often uses both archival and new footage, recording people in their native countries. Her new work, Correction, will include several hundred portraits of prisoners and prison guards filmed at correctional institutions in the U.S. Tan’s project will portray a cross-section of inmates and guards, drawing attention to the multitude of citizens whom she feels society prefers to lock away and keep out of sight. Tan, who works in both film and video, will employ what cinematographers in Germany describe as Amerikanisch, the classical medium-portrait shot in film, revealing her interest in incorporating sociological and anthropological principles into the relationship between the still and moving image.

Tan was born in 1966 in Indonesia and currently resides in the Netherlands. The exhibition will be curated by Manilow Senior Curator Francesco Bonami with Assistant Curator Julie Rodrigues Widholm.

Fiona Tan: Correction is part of a series of commissioned works organized and presented by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; and UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. Generous support has been provided by the American Center Foundation and the Peter Norton Family Foundation. The exhibition catalogue is supported in part by the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation. Air transportation is provided by American Airlines, the official airline of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
