'Live Cinema' Presents First Museum Exhibition of New York Artist Tim Hyde

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- The work of Brooklyn-based artist Tim Hyde will be the subject of the latest exhibition in the Live Cinema series at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It will include three works by the 40-year-old artist who uses video and collaged photography to explore the ways in which space is perceived and seemingly transformed in time. Hyde’s art often amplifies experience of a particular place in relation to specific psychological and historical contexts. In recent years Hyde has made work in locations such as Albania, Belarus, Ukraine, and the United States.

Among the works featured is The Keeper (2006), a six-minute single-channel video that records the artist’s interaction with an anonymous person in the courtyard of a former KGB building in Kiev, Ukraine. The video is a single shot of a woman who approached and stood directly in front of Hyde's camera while he was filming, intentionally blocking his view of the building. Hyde has described the work as an “inverted portrait in which the traditional function of figure and background are reversed.”

Also in the presentation is Video panorama of New York during which the camera fails to distinguish the city from a snowstorm (2007). It’s a continuously looping seven-channel video filmed from the top floor of a Brooklyn building. Quoting earlier traditions of romantic landscape painting, Hyde portrays a vast city becoming gradually invisible in the snow. His camera took a 180-degree sweep over seven hours and Hyde separated the footage into seven parts, each recording one hour of filming. The resulting panorama is at once mesmerizing and disorienting.

A new group of photographic collages will also be presented. Untitled (Monument) (2008-09) addresses and challenges the tradition of the monumental explored in art and architecture while extending the boundaries of photography as a medium. The images are based on sequential photographs of a man holding a piece of construction material with which he maps out shapes in the air. Pulled out of order and cut into fragments, the collages generate a vision of architecture that references the passing of time by juxtaposing multiple moments into one image.

“Tim Hyde’s attentiveness to the production of images in film and photography is evident in his work, and the ways in which it challenges interpretation and the nature of representation,” Assistant Curator Adelina Vlas said. “His thoughtful use of the camera lens engages both the perception and the imagination of the viewer.”

Tim Hyde received an MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts in 2005 and a BA in History from Vassar College in 1992. Since 2005, he has been represented in numerous group exhibitions, among them Balance and Power: Performance and Surveillance in Video Art at the Rose Art Museum; A Tale of Two Cities, Busan Biennale; Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flânerie at the Neuberger Museum of Art; Landscape and Affect at the Sculpture Center in Queens, NY; and more recently This is the Future before it Happened at Outpost for Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. In 2006, he participated in the Lost Highway Expedition, a project initiated by the School of Missing Studies and Centrala Foundation for Future Cities. Hyde’s work is included in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and The Ulrich Museum of Art.
