An avant-garde video artist best known for shorts that digitally manipulate movies and television shows, Takeshi Murata started out showing at film festivals, eventually finding an audience in galleries and museums. Born in Chicago in 1974 and now based in rural upstate New York, Murata has had solo shows at D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum, the former Deitch Projects and Salon 94, yet he remains a somewhat underrecognized figure in the art world. Screening 12 of his mesmerizing videos—ranging from 2003’s Melter 2 to 2012’s Night Moves—curator Jake Yuzna assembles the most comprehensive survey of Murata’s work to date.
On view until June 4 at the Museum of Arts and Design.
