Shot at home or in home-like spaces, these selected video works from OCMA’s collection lampoon the absurdity of normality and unease underlying daily life.
Spotlighting five works from OCMA’s collection, What Day Is It Again? is a 24-hour video art festival that addresses our new relationship to home during quarantine. Our cyclical living mode, once divided by in and out, day and night, has distorted our perception of time and space. Shot at home or home-like spaces, the selected video works lampoon the absurdity of normality and unease underlying daily life. While most of the works were made at the advent of consumer camcorders in the 1970s, the visual jokes, sarcasm and daily motifs remain relevant in the digital age; or, rather, they collectively offer a coping mechanism for self-isolation.
RSVP to receive an access link the day before the program. The videos will be available for 24 hours from May 21 at 6am to May 22 at 6am PDT.
