ASU Art Museum ♥s Video Art
Ah, I love the museum in the spring. The students are coming back with new excitement after the holiday break, the weather outside is perfect, the exhibitions at the museum are world-class (as always) and we have great annual events coming up soon!
This season is especially great for us video fans (of which I am one!):
- We have video art as part of the new exhibition Altered States: Paintings by Gordon Cheung, opening Jan. 9. Four of his new pieces, to be exact.
- We’ll be screening Mel Chin’s award-winning video work 9-11/9-11 on Feb. 2 – look for details shortly! (I was watching a bit of this earlier – it’s like an animated graphic novel and very cool.)
- There’s a full-on video exhibition opening Feb. 20 called Forged Power: Ferran Mendoza, Alvaro Sau and William Wylie – this will be open through May 29.
- And wrapping it up (at least for the spring season) on April 17, the 14th Annual Short Film and Video Festival! You don’t want to miss this great evening out on the plaza behind the museum – we screen the selected films out on the back wall of the museum. Bring a chair for a really fun night out under the stars. And IT’S FREE.
Speaking of the Film Festival, this is your reminder that your deadline for submissions is Feb. 5! Check out our web site for details on how and where to send your short film for consideration into our juried festival. There’s no cost to submit your film.
Of course, we have way more going on this season than just video art. First Saturdays for Families is in full swing starting Feb. 6; the Ceramics Research Center’s studio tour weekend is Feb. 27-28 and Ceram-A-Rama is March 4-7; back by popular demand, the 2nd annual Street Party is planned for April 10 (watch this blog for more details to come!) and of course, great exhibitions year-round. (I’m really looking forward to seeing Wanxin Zhang’s Ten Year Survey exhibition).
We have a very busy spring season planned and hope you’ll join us for the fun, and the art!
