Views and Voices: AJ Fox on Simulated Marin Tour

At a time of distance, our audio series Views and Voices: Personal Perspectives on the Collection is designed to bring you closer to the individual people behind BAMPFA and individual works from our art and film collections. We’ve invited staff and students with ties to BAMPFA to select a favorite piece and talk about what makes it compelling or important to them.

BAMPFA Media Relations Manager AJ Fox shares his very personal experience encountering the video installation Simulated Marin Tour, which evoked his discovery of the Northern California landscape. A lifelong film lover, Fox holds a BA in Film and Media Studies from Dartmouth College; he joined BAMPFA in large part because of its internationally renowned film and video programming.
