Jonas Mekas was drawn to the four-channel installation format – his “quartets,” as he called them – in the early 2000s as he began to explore multi-monitor presentations of materials from his vast film and video archives. They have been exhibited at galleries and museums around the world, including the New Museum; the Serpentine Gallery, London; the Museum Ludwig, Cologne; and the MMCA, Seoul.
A new quartet will be shown each week of October.
