True story: Back in the day, we’d sit glued to the television set watching MTV’s year-end countdown of the top music videos and diligently write down each one in a notebook for posterity. Oh, how much has changed since then. “Spectacle: The Music Video” is the first museum exhibition to celebrate the art and history of the music video from the past 35 years. The exhibition includes 300 innovative videos, artifacts, and interactive installations showing the changing landscape of the music video, from A-ha’s “Take On Me” (1985), which incorporated pencil-sketch animation with live-action footage (this was groundbreaking, people!), to videos by current artists such as Radiohead, Björk, and Kanye West. It just might make you want your MTV all over again.
