In collaboration with MCASD, the Humanities Center Gallery presents a classic work by Joan Jonas, Double Lunar Dogs (1984). Based on Robert Heinlein’s science fiction story, “Universe,” this single-channel video reflects the artist’s interests in fragmented narrative and the 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, working across a variety of art forms. The recipient of numerous honors, including the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award, Jonas was also named the 2018 Kyoto Prize Laureate in Arts and Philosophy.
