Video Art

Video art emerged in the 1960s as new consumer video technology (video tape recorders, etc.) became more easily available outside of corporate broadcasting. If you don't have an artist in mind already, you can browse/discover a list of artists on the Video Data Bank website that lists a comprehensive amount of artists whose work is primarily or intersects with video art practice.  Suggested resources to learn more:
