On loan to the traveling exhibition Kota Ezawa: The Crime of Art, organized by SITE Santa Fe with the Mead Art Museum, is Kota Ezawa’s 2015 two-channel video artwork Double Tape.
This traveling exhibition brings together new and recent works related to Ezawa’s The Crime of Art series, a group of light-boxes and video animations that chronicle some of the most infamous and high profile museum heists in history. At the heart of this exhibition is a series of images that pays homage to the 13 artworks–including those by Degas, Manet, Rembrandt, and Vermeer–stolen from the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum in 1990.
