Artworks in the Kramlich Collection include a diverse range of media including video, film, slide, photography, performance, painting, sculpture, and drawing. However, with over half of the Collection dedicated to what is frequently described as “time-based” media artworks, it is the groundbreaking use of audiovisual technology and performance by contemporary artists since the 1960s that has been the particular focus of the Kramlich Collection. Many of the artworks are presented as large-scale audiovisual installations, incorporating projections, synchronized audio, and multi-screen displays, crossing the spectrum of analog and digital formats. The geographic and thematic scope of the Collection - artists are represented from a diverse range of North American, European and Asian countries - together with its ongoing acquisition, loan, and activity programme remain central to the continuing mission of the Kramlich Collection. While many artists use technology to create and display their artworks, the Kramlichs have felt that technology is simply a means for artists to create experiences that convey ideas, reflections, and questions that are key to the moral, aesthetic, and educational imperatives of art within our lives and societies.
