With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Oklahoma Contemporary began increasing its production of video content to meet the needs of our community members who were not able to experience our exhibitions, educational opportunities and public programming in person.

In the months since, we've debuted a number of series and one-off videos to connect people at home and around the world with the goings-on at the new Oklahoma Contemporary. Below you'll find a selection of some of our most engaging video content, along with links to explore the entire archive by category.


From the roadside gas stations of Ed Ruscha: OKLA to the everyday local voices stitching together Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Oklahoma is Black, explore some of the video content surrounding the world-class exhibitions at Oklahoma Contemporary.

LaTasha Timberlake - The Art of Food interview
Over the course of The Art of Food: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, we are interviewing community members who work in food service, outreach and other food-related industries to discuss specific Art of Food works that tie into their practice or interests.

This interview features LaTasha Timberlake, executive director of Lillian Timber Farms, a nonprofit that creates community gardens and ways of connecting with the land around us. Timberlake responds to Lorna Simpson's C-Ration (1991).
