Katonah Museum of Art 

PLAY & REWIND: Ode to Summer on Film presents film and video installations that take on the form of repositories of images framed by the summer landscape. The title refers, in part, to ideas and images of play and recreation and also references the act of recalling and reminiscing about the past. Using both digital and analogue processes, the majority of the works allude to how images are constructed and their physicality. Also noteworthy, the majority of the artists in the exhibition take traditional approaches to media utilizing constructed and found materials, 3-D and slide projection, as well as 8mm and 16mm film that further inflect nostalgic overtones. These methods of storytelling hint at parallels between the act of reminiscing and the nature of working with film where scenes are cut, sequenced and often reordered to suggest meaning.

The works depict an array of subjects, predominantly youth, occupying settings such as the seaside, play yards and dramatic plains. Collectively they map geographies extending from the Hudson Valley to New England, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico and Europe. These settings undergo a transformation by the subjective and emotive lens of artists who span different generations and include luminaries such as the photographer Tina Barney and abstract painter Agnes Martin, whose only film, Gabriel, is on view. PLAY & REWIND also includes younger practitioners such as Trisha Baga, Phil Collins, Laida Lertxundi, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz and Cengiz Tekin.
The exhibition is organized by Olga Dekalo, Assistant Curator, and is made possible through the generous support of Vickie Morris, Amanda and Darrell Alfieri, and Dyllan McGee.
