Borna Sammak’s Best Buy video installation went off without a glitch last night, partly because it wasn’t quite as illicit as I imagined given the artist’s unauthorized past participations. Curator Thomas McDonnell promised Best Buy reps that the two-hour television takeover, comprised of thirteen videos, would attract a lot of not-normal people who might buy stuff at the electronics store. Art in America interviewed the artist and curator, detailing their releasing the high-definition videos into their “natural habitat.” |Rhizome|
