 Still from Double Lunar Dogs


Screenings 3: Joan Jonas

On View:

18 March — 17 May 2019
Humanities Center Gallery, Serra Hall


In collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD), the Humanities Center will present a classic work by Joan Jonas, Double Lunar Dogs (1984). Based on Robert Heinlein’s science fiction story, “Universe,” this video reflects the artist’s interests in fragmented narrative and unique effects of her chosen media. Jonas was a pioneer of video art practice in the 1960s and 70s, and today is considered one of the most influential artists of our time. The recipient of numerous honors, Jonas was most recently named a 2018 Kyoto Prize Laureate by the Inamori Foundation.
