From UT Landmarks:
“Landmarks, the public art program of The University of Texas at Austin, announced today the twelfth season of Landmarks Video, its curated program of highly regarded and influential video art from the past six decades. Beginning September 1, one video per month will be screened in the ART Building atrium at the corner of East 23rd Street and San Jacinto Boulevard on campus.
This season’s line-up is organized by Landmarks Video curator Kanitra Fletcher. It explores themes such as mass incarceration, ecology, cosmology, immigration, and gender roles, with works by artists Kawita Vatanajyankur, Allora & Calzadilla, Robyn O’Neil, Polina Kanis, Garrett Bradley, Allison Schulnik, Jacolby Satterwhite, and David Ellis. Videos by Kota Ezawa, Michael Robinson, Michael Snow, and Luis Voldovino, originally scheduled for last season but postponed due to COVID, will also be presented.
Running September 2021 – August 2022, the new season showcases both national and international artists. Highlights include Garrett Bradley’s Alone (2017), an exploration of mass incarnation in the United States through the experience of a young Black couple in New Orleans; The Great Silence (2014) by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, which investigates the relationship between humans, animals, and the cosmos in the search for intelligent life; and Allison Schulnik’s single-channel animation, Moth (2019), comprised of hundreds of gouache paintings created by Schulnik, set against a composition by Erik Satie.
