Spectacle: The Music Video, a traveling museum exhibition celebrating “the art and history of the music video” opens at the Museum of the Moving Image (in Queens, NY) this Wednesday, April 3rd. The show remains on view till June 16th. A clip from Girl Walk // All Day is included in the exhibition alongside music videos by David Bowie to Kanye West to OK Go. We’re psyched to be included in the exhibition!
From the press release: 

From early examples of music in film to the work of music video masters such as David Bowie and Madonna and contemporary artists such as The White Stripes and Kanye West, the exhibition reveals the enormous influence music videos have had on contemporary culture over the past 35 years. Through over 300 videos, artifacts, and interactive installations, the exhibition shows the changing landscape of the music video, highlighting its place at the forefront of creative technology, and its role in pushing the boundaries of creative production. Spectacle explores the trajectory of the music video from precursors through to the present day across a range of musical genres, and showcases the innovative work of contemporary directors such as Michel Gondry, Floria Sigismondi, and Chris Milk. Original props and artifacts from iconic music videos such as A-ha’s groundbreaking “Take On Me” and OK Go’s “This Too Shall Pass” are presented alongside interactive experiences featuring works by Radiohead and Björk.
