Working under the collaborative hood of LoVid, Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus make material art out of immaterial video abstraction. The collective takes our featured artist position during the busiest two weeks in Chelsea not only for their demonstrated ingenuity within multiple mediums, but as a reminder that performance art is not yet dead within the contemporary art world.
LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus) overwhelms the senses with their new media performances, videos, objects, and installations. Touring the US and Europe extensively, LoVid has performed, exhibited, and lectured at The Neuberger Museum, The Butler Institute of American Art , PS1, Evolution Festival (UK), The Kitchen, RISD, Massachusetts College of Art, Kansas City Art Institute, Chicago Art Institute, University of Wisconsin, Futuresonic Festival (UK), The New Museum of Contemporary Art, Ocularis, The Happy Lion, and Institute of Contemporary Art London among many others. LoVid has been part of the artist in residence program at Eyebeam, Harvestworks, iEAR, Alfred University, and Stevens Institute of Technology, has received grants and awards from Experimental TV Center, NYSCA, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and Greenwall Foundation, and are a free103Point9 transmission artist. They are currently working on a commission for a new web-based project from turbulence.org to be released in the Fall of 2007.
