Another Take: Artist and Visitor Perspectives on The Casting
“Totally drew me in–an incredible experience."
"I thought the piece was simply beautiful. Beautifully executed, as well as beautiful to watch."
"As for me the exhibit at first glance impacts me, grabs my attention. The use of both a documentary format and hi-definition manner … Very moving."
The Casting by Omer Fast is a contemporary video art installation. The video features compelling imagery and narratives about love and war while grappling with questions of memory and recollection. The artist visited the museum on July 9 to talk about his work.
We shared a few visitor comments above. Now enjoy an excerpt from Fast’s July 9 artist talk to learn more about his inspirations and objectives. How do you see it? You still have time to see the exhibition and form your own opinions. The Casting is on view through September 5.
