Acclaimed Works of Video Art on View for 2011/2012 Season


Landmarks Video announces its second season of video art beginning in September 2011.


An ongoing initiative of Landmarks, the video series aims to familiarize the university community with important titles, stimulate conversation and research, and situate the genre of video art alongside the presentation of more traditional works. Each video presentation is accompanied by an entry published on the Landmarks Website that provides an overview of the artist and the work presented.


Landmarks Video features the work of twelve artists annually, one per month, which are screened on a 65″ high-definition media station. The station is situated in an open atrium that provides stadium seating and is located in the art building in the College of Fine Arts on the corner of East 23rd Street and San Jacinto Boulevard in Austin, Texas.


The program was inaugurated with the commission of David Ellis’s Animal, which will be on view throughout December 2011. The commission represents the first work of video art to be acquired by the university’s growing public art collection.
