An Hour in Chelsea

Noteworthy new video art, exploring culture clashes and contradictions (and accumulating hit points).

  1. 1. Phil Collins

    Tanya Bonakdar, 521 W. 21st St., nr. Tenth Ave. (212-414-4144)

    This artist from the U.K. (no relation to the pop singer) captured the disaffected youth of Istanbul performing karaoke renditions of popular Smiths songs.

  2. 2. Cao Fei

    Lombard-Freid; 531 W. 26th St., nr. Tenth Ave. (212-967-8040)

    Local characters from Chinatown mimic hip-hop dance steps in the work of this emerging Chinese video artist.

  3. 3. John Pilson

    Nicole Klagsbrun; 526 W. 26th St., nr. Tenth Ave. (212-243-3335)

    Pilson’s videos conflate work and play in humorous and engaging ways (in one piece, middle-aged men play Dungeons and Dragons in a conference room).
