The Program starts now…

The Video Association of Dallas and Conduit Gallery are putting on their biannual exhibition "The Program. " It’s a collection of contemporary video art from national and international artists.  Through the end of July and mid August screenings will take place at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Angelika Theater in Mockingbird Station. The Program begins tomorrow, is open to the public and is free! Free! FREE! So go, Go!, GO!
 

Gravity Was Everything Back Then

Up first is "GRAVITY WAS EVERYWHERE BACK THEN", a film by Brent Green at the Dallas Museum of Art tomorrow at 7:30pm July 22nd.

Opening night for "The Program," an exhibition of videos curated by Charles Dee Mitchell, will be July 31st at Conduit Gallery. The exhibition includes work by David Askevold, Jon Gitelson, Matthew Day Jackson, Luke Murphy, Jason Rhoades, Erin Shirreff, and Bill Viola and runs through August 28.

Eve Sussman’s The Rape of the Sabine Women Trailer from creativetime.

On Wednesday August 4th Eve Sussman and The Rufus Corporation ‘s "The Rape of the Sabine Women" will be showing at the Angelika Theater at 7:30. Creative Time presented the U.S. premiere of the acclaimed video-musical. In the Fall Eve Sussman will be coming to the DFW area to do an installation at the Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and show her "89 Seconds at Alcazar" which will be at the Meadows Museum on the SMU campus. I’ll blog more about that when it gets closer.

 

Guy Ben-Ner's Second Nature


 
On Saturday August 7th "An Evening of Shorts" curated by Bart Weiss will show at 7pm at Conduit Gallery. An hour and a half of shorts with one of my favorite artists Guy Ben-Ner and his piece "Second Nature." A video that is based on Aesop’s fable "The Fox and the Crow." Filmed in 3 parts it blurs the boundaries between fact and fiction.
 

Johan Grimonprez's Double Take


And finally on Wednesday August 18th "DOUBLE TAKE," a film by Johan Grimonprez will be shown at the Angelika. This will be the only area screening  and it made John Waters’ Top Ten List in Artforum.

With so much on the program I hope you will find the time to go out and see some if not all of the work being thoughtfully brought to your Texas doorstep.
