Analogue: Pioneering Video from the UK, Canada, and Poland (1968-88)
at Gallery Lambton, Sarnia, Ontario

Analogue illuminates the early histories of video art in the UK, Canada, and Poland. By examining twenty years of artists’ video from these three countries, Analogue aims to broaden our understanding of this versatile medium, while charting its transition from the politicized margins of artistic practice to the mainstream.
