September 1 - August 30, 2021
An ongoing video art review exhibition, viewable on the UT campus through August 2021. Visiting the UT Landmarks website before visiting is suggested.
From UT Landmarks:
“This season is organized by Landmarks Video curator, Kanitra Fletcher. Opening with a work by Vendula Knopova, it explores themes such as race, immigration, and gender roles. Pending the reopening of The University of Texas at Austin, one work per month will be screened in the ART Building atrium at the corner of East 23rd Street and San Jacinto Boulevard on campus. Videos by Howardena Pindell, Michael Robinson, Michael Snow, and Luis Voldovino, originally scheduled for last season but postponed due to COVID 19, will be screened along with new selections by Kota Ezawa, Athi-Patra Ruga, Thao Nguyen Phan, and others.
Running September 2020 – August 2021, the new season showcases both international and national artists. Highlights include John Edmonds’ Shotgun (2014), an exploration of the vulnerability between two male Black subjects; Guido van der Werve’s Nummer Twee: Just because I’m standing here doesn’t mean I want to (2003), an intersection of film, video, and performance art; and Athi-Patra Ruga’s Over the Rainbow (Queens in Exile Series) (2016-2017), an experimental work that captures the artist’s imaginary world rooted in African mythology, contemporary queer culture, and South African politics.
