Acclaimed works of video art on view for 2012/2013 season

Landmarks Video announces its third season of video art beginning in September 2012.

An ongoing initiative of Landmarks, the 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 one artist per month, screened on a 65″ high-definition media station. The station is located in an open atrium with stadium seating in the art building at 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 2012. The commission represents the first work of video art in the university’s growing public art collection.
