This exhibition shows five of the most visually innovative and experimental pictorial artists in the music video genre today. The five video artists all work in the cross field between pictorial art and the visual expression of the cinema, in which the music video becomes art. Each in their own way, they make use of an idiom containing many references and similarities to the artistic effects of both pictorial art and the cinema when they challenge and re-think traditional pictorial space. The artists include Anton Corbijn, Chris Cunningham, Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze and Mark Romanek.
