Pipilotti Rist in Conversation with Massimiliano Gioni

January 19 2017

On January 19, 2017, the New Museum presented a conversation between Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist and Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director of the New Museum, on the occasion of the survey “Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest.” The conversation, introduced by the New Museum Toby Devan Lewis Director Lisa Phillips, focused on “Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest,” which occupied the three main floors of the Museum and included a new installation created specifically for the exhibition. Gioni and Rist discussed the trajectory of the artist’s practice over the past thirty years, during which time Rist achieved international renown as a pioneer of video art and multimedia installations. “Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest” was the most comprehensive presentation of Rist’s work in New York to date; it spanned the artist’s entire career, from her early single-channel videos of the 1980s, which explore the representation of the female body in popular culture, to her more recent expansive video installations, which transform architectural spaces into massive dreamlike environments enhanced by hypnotic musical scores.
