Candice Breitz: Too Long, Didn't Read
Thursday, Sep 17, 12:00 PM - Wednesday, Sep 30, 11:59 PM
Baltimore Museum of Art
Virtual
Baltimore, MD 21201
Price: FREE

For over two decades, Candice Breitz (born Johannesburg, South Africa 1972) has joined video, portraiture, and popular culture to question the stories we listen to as we make sense of a society rife with inequality, injustice, and suffering. Her work examines how our fascination with celebrity, the 24-hour news cycle, and social media have diluted our attention spans and ability to empathize.

This exhibition features two multichannel video installations, shown together for the first time, from a yet-to-be-completed trilogy: TLDR (2017) and Love Story (2016). Each work occupies two rooms, offering alternate narrative approaches to distinct humanitarian crises. The first room of each work provides a highly edited, entertaining, cinematic approach. In the second room of each work, an archive of extensive first- person interviews invites longer periods of lingering and listening.
