Tony Oursler belongs to the generation which renewed the use of video by freeing it of the limits inherent to the television screen. His works cannot be reduced to the video image itself but are made of complex systems which are at the borders between sculpture, drawing, installation and performance. He is one of the essential figures in the recent history of multimedia and video art and has been deeply involved with sound production since the 1970s. He composed and designed many soundtracks for his videos and installations throughout the years.

 

Oursler’s work has been the subject of exhibitions in the most prestigious of institutions: at the MoMA in New York (2016), the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (2014), and the Tate Modern in London (2013). His work is part of many prestigious collections such as those of the Eli and Edythe Broad Family Foundation in Los Angeles; the Pompidou Centre and the Fondation Cartier in Paris, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the MoMA in New York, and others.
