Welcome to the digital supplement to the catalogue accompanying Diana Thater: The Sympathetic Imagination, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, traveling to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
Among the most important artists to emerge during the 1990s, Los Angeles–based Diana Thater creates groundbreaking and influential works of art in film, video, and installation that challenge the normative ways in which moving images are experienced. Her dynamic, immersive installations address key issues that span the realms of film, museum exhibitions, the natural sciences, and contemporary culture through the deployment of movement, scale, and architecture.
