Cristin Tierney is pleased to announce the release of an editioned set of early Peter Campus videos, dating from 1971 to 1976.

Alongside many of his contemporaries-Nam June Paik, Bruce Nauman, Joan Jonas, Marina Abramovic-Campus explored the possibilities of video as an art form, perhaps more fully than almost any artist of his generation. Decades later, early works such asDouble Vision, Three Transitions and Third Tape have become cornerstones in the history of art. Poised between a detached formalism and an artistic subjectivity, these videos demonstrate Campus’ ongoing preoccupation with cognitive psychology, the formation of the self, and the role that media and technology play in the construction of reality. Such themes, radical in the era of the seventies, continue to resonate in a world mediated today through internet communications and reality television.
The new box set of Campus video works includes the following:
