press release

In the newest iteration of Ground Control, Kota Ezawa provides a mash-up of audio and video footage through his unique animation. Beatles Über California blends the iconic British band’s 1964 performance on The Ed Sullivan Show with the Dead Kennedy's song "California Uber Alles." Seen together, Ezawa provides us with an opportunity to consider the impact of a seemingly revolutionary band, still clothed in suits as opposed to punk rock’s preference for ripped tshirts and jeans, in relation to the restraint necessary for a television performance.

Ground Control is an exhibition program of video and sound work by contemporary artists. Screened within the elevator on the south side of the building, the program will present the work of some of the most innovative media artists working today.
