In the mid-nineteenth century, America was fascinated with the Western Landscape, a vast and unknown territory illumined with romantic ideas of adventure and exploration.  The Western Landscape became for Americans a version of their ancient ruins, a unique cultural heritage that provided a social and cultural independence from Europe.

This exhibition explores the Western Landscape through the medium of video, beginning with an early conceptual consideration of the Western Landscape by Vito Acconci; a metaphysical and contemplative exploration of essence and place by Bill Viola; and, a more recent work by Korean artist Seoungho Cho, examining our disconnect with our surroundings.
