Now You See It
August 16, 2004-February 6, 2005
This exploration of our fascination with magic, illusion and transformation was presented in collaboration with members of a local chapter of the Society of American Magicians. Finely crafted artifacts and apparatus that were used by conjurers, psychic mediums and fortune tellers for more than a century came to life through video performances. Historic lithographic posters from the New York State Museum and works of contemporary art were also included.
Participants: William R. Bergman, Bob Connors, Steve Hollinger, Aaron Holz, Larry Kagan, New York State Museum, Michael Oatman, Janet Sorensen, Society of American Magicians members Vinny Grosso and David MacDonald; performances also included Krista Fragos and David Greenwood
