Spectacle Curator Showcase: Drew Klein

In celebration of Spectacle we’ve been speaking to people involved with the exhibition, from music video directors and animators to the exhibition curators.

This time around we caught up with one of the first people involved with Spectacle, performance curator Drew Klein from Cincinnati’s Contemporary Art Centre (CAC) where the exhibition was initially staged.

Here Klein discusses the CAC’s reputation as a place for genre-pushing artwork, whether music videos are media or art, and the necessity to see them as more than just entertainment.

Stay tuned to hear about the experiences of other prominent creatives involved in Spectacle, including other Australian music video directors. If you missed our last Spectacle Director Showcase interview with Oh Yeah Wow, be sure to check it out.

Full versions of the interviews will be made available in the Australian Mediatheque.

Spectacle: The Music Video Exhibition is a historic collection of clips, recreated sets, props and costumes that spans the history of music videos. Open from Thursday 26 September to Sunday 23 February.
