This exhibition is the second part of a year-long exhibition featuring important video and new media works from the museum’s permanent collection. This exhibition traces experiments with electronic media art from the early 1970s to the present including major California artists who were at the forefront of exploring television as an art form in the early 1970s alongside younger generations of U.S. and international artists working with video and other media technologies that have emerged during the past 30 years. The checklist includes Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Eleanor Antin, John Baldessari, Jeremy Blake, Chris Burden, Kota Ezawa, Isaac Julien, Mary Kelly, Suzanne Lacy, Nam June Paik, Alan Rath, Robin Rhode, Pipilotti Rist, Martha Rosler, Shirley Shor, Tim Sullivan, William Wegman, and others.

The Moving Image: Scan to Screen, Pixel to Projection II continues the museum’s four-decade tradition of presenting media art. The Newport Harbor Art Museum (NHAM), the former name of the Orange County Museum of Art, was among the first museums to present video art. NHAM and F-Space, operated by U.C. Irvine graduate students, collaborated to produce New Art in Orange County (1972) with performance and video art by Barbara Smith and Chris Burden. Subsequently, the museum also organized Chris Burden: A Twenty-Year Survey in 1988 and Chris Burden: Tale of Two Cities in 2001 and 2007. Since the early 2000s, the Orange County Museum of Art has prominently featured recent video in exhibitions such as One Wall: A Video Series (2001), Girls Night OutDisorderly Conduct (2007) and the California Biennials (2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008).
