These two shows are both already up but will have their opening receptions this Friday: Transmission opens at the Florence Quater Gallery at the Southwest University of Visual Art in Tucson, reception from 6-8pm.
The show surveys diverse approaches which contemporary artists navigate the surging genre of video. This exhibition includes artists who disregard the everyday and expected use of the medium. The works consider the experimental, political, and expressionistic capacities of video art. The exhibition features a large projection looping works while smaller screens intermittently show individual works allowing viewers to intimately engage with all video works.
Also opening on Friday: Momentum at the L.A. Art Association Gallery 825, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Women's Caucus for Art. Reception 6-9pm.
