While I was at Albright-Knox last week, I was excited to check out the exhibition Videosphere: A New Generation. I was really impressed with just how drastically the space upstairs was transformed. Over the last year, my “tolerance level” for video art has increased greatly. I know that sounds odd, maybe even ignorant, but there used to be a time I would just walk right by a video piece in a gallery because I just wasn’t interested. Since taking a video class last year during my first semester of graduate school I have started working on my own videos and have gained an appreciation for the medium. I plan on putting together a few posts specifically talking about a few of my favorite pieces from Videosphere, so stay tuned!
For more information, check out the exhibition website and participating artist list. I didn’t photograph all of the rooms/videos so you’ll have to go see it for yourself! Videosphere: A New Generation is on view through Sunday, October 9, 2011
