MoMA’s Tribute to Japanese Video Art Pioneer Shigeko Kubota Comes 25 Years Late

“Given that MoMA’s 1977 acquisition of Kubota’s Nude Descending a Staircase was their first of a video sculpture, it seems ironic that they waited so long to give her such a modest tribute. That ‘Liquid Reality’ is the artist’s first US solo exhibition in 25 years only adds to this sad testament.”
– Writer Jane Ursula Harris, on MoMA’s overdue and insufficient celebration of female Japanese video art pioneer Shigeko Kubota
