Jennifer and Kevin McCoy

June 2001

Jennifer and Kevin McCoy’s multimedia artworks examine the genres and conventions of filmmaking, memory, and language. They are well-known for constructing subjective databases of narrative material and making fragmentary miniature film sets with lights, video cameras, and moving sculptural elements to create live cinematic events.

The McCoys' work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. and internationally at venues including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; BFI (British Film Institute), London; Hannover Kunstverein; the Beall Center, Irvine, CA; pkm Gallery, Beijing; the San Jose Museum of Art; Palazzo della Papesse, Siena; the Addison Museum of American Art, Andover, MA; the Sundance Film Festival, and Artists Space, New York. Their work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the 21C Museum; and the Speed Museum, Louisville, KY. They received a Creative Capital Award in 2003, the Wired Rave Award for Art in 2005, a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2011, and a Headlands Alumni Award in 2014.

Gate Pages

Every month from March 2001 to February 2006 an artist was invited to present their work in the form of a “Gate Page” on artport. Each of these pages functioned as a portal to the artist's own sites and projects.

Wherever necessary and possible, these works are made functional through emulation and reconstructions from the Internet Archive. Not all of them have been restored to their original state and their conservation is ongoing. You can also view the original Gate Pages archive to see how they were presented at the time of their creation.
