The international exhibition iPod Killed the Videostar takes the pop video - and the inevitable boredom with the pop video - as its starting point and examines the way in which some contemporary artists are creating works that have a lineage to this first wave of video.

In the 1980s, the pop video truly arrived as a media form. With the advent of media providers such as MTV, teenagers rushed home to watch the latest offerings of Madonna, The Cure and Ultravox.

The international exhibition iPod Killed the Videostar takes the pop video - and the inevitable boredom with the pop video - as its starting point and examines the way in which some contemporary artists are creating works that have a lineage to this first wave of video.

Some create a dialogue between the original pop video form and art history, others examine the impact of 'underground' music culture on mass visual culture. Or they examine the impact of mass-consumed, handheld entertainment: video games, mobile communications, and unstable media.
