Alex Bag TV Takeover

We are happy to invite artist Alex Bag to curate a selection of her favorite videos for a Purple TV Takeover. The takeover coincides with our special women’s fashion story from the latest Purple Fashion (available to view online here) and her upcoming solo exhibition at ICA Miami opening tomorrow.

Bag rose to prominence in the 1990’s with her provocative video art, normally taking on the roles herself. Her satirical commentary on identity, character, personality, and livelihood predicted today’s obsession with video and photo identity created through blogs and social media. She played dress-up in her short, funny, and thought-provoking videos, acting out roles, throwing her ego and her voice in all different directions. She wasn’t just an artist playing games with images and mass media, she was a comedian and a social critic.

When asked to select ten videos that have impacted Bag, her eclectic choices range from an interview with the late writer David Foster Wallace with the infamous Charlie Rose to a babies Diaper Surprise TV commercial. See a video per day on Purple TV.
