Douglas Davis
Veiled Unveiled, 1975, Framed

This poster was produced to mark Douglas Davis’ 1975 exhibition, Veiled Unveiled, at The Idea Warehouse (which would later become MoMA PS1). Davis was among the first generation of artists who challenged assumptions of ‘real’ and ‘virtual’ time and space in the medium of television and video. Combining live performance with early satellite and surveillance technology, Davis pioneered a new genre of experimental art, breaking through the ‘fourth wall’ of the screen to interact directly with the viewer.

Douglas Davis, b. 1933 - d. 2014, was an American artist and art critic. His work dealt primarily with video and the Internet as performative mediums.
