Final Exam (Video Art Identification) Study Guidelines
EXAM: Wednesday, December 9

In this course, we have screened THIRTY different Video Art works. For the final exam, you will need to identify 30-second clip excerpts from TEN of those works.

For each clip, you will need to know:

  1. Artist's Name (1 pt)
  2. Title of the video (1 pt)
  3. Year (+ / - 3 years) (1 pt)
  4. Brief Description of the piece (more the better) (2 pts)
Therefore, each clip is worth 5 points each, for a total of 50 points.

To make it easier, I have narrowed it down to these 15 choices:

Joan Jonas Vertical Roll 20:00 1972
Hermine Freed Art Herstory 22:00 1974
Martha Rosler Semiotics of the Kitchen 5:30 1975
Bill Viola The Reflecting Pool 7:00 1977-79
Linda Montano Mitchell's Death 22:00     1977-78
Dira Birnbaum Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman     5:45 1979
Tony Cokes Fade To Black 32:00 1990
Sadie Benning A Place Called Lovely 14:00 1991
Rea Tajiri History And Memory 32:00 1991
