Monitor (installation)

Monitor, 1974-1996, – black & white video installation version. ▶︎

In 1996 the original videotape works were re-envisaged as installations using the original apparatus for Monitor helping to context the works closer to their period. This was especially resonant for Monitor, which was acquired in this form by TATE in December 2014 for its permanent collection. It was then selected for the re-hang at TATE Britain entitled BP Walk through British Art – 500 Years of British Art, TATE Britain, Jan 2015- Jan 2016 (pictured above).
