Opening Today! The Art Gallery presents the Exhibition "What It Is, What It Was: Music Video as Art," November 6-December 14, 2012

When: Tuesday, November 06, 2012 - Friday, December 14, 2012
Where: Art-Sociology : Art Gallery : 2202
Event Type(s): Art Exhibition

The Art Gallery is excited to present "What It Is, What It Was: Music Video as Art," which considers the appellation art for a select group of music videos.

The videos that comprise the exhibition are at turns compelling, beautiful, hypnotic, thought-provoking, dark, rich, meaningful. From the simple poignancy of Gary Jules' "Mad World" to the lyrical fusing of found elements in Jean-Francois Coen's "La Tour de Pise" to the brilliant decaying choreography of XX's "Islands," the videos in this exhibition transcend the well-worn confines of the genre and reveal that artistic vision and creativity thrives beyond the mass-media commercial universe of MTV and VH1.
