"What It Is, What It Was: Music Video As Art" Exhibition Reception

When: Thursday, December 06, 2012 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Where: Art-Sociology : The Art Gallery (TAG) : 2202
Event Type(s): Art Exhibition

The Art Gallery (TAG) invites you to a reception for "What It Is, What It Was: Music Video As Art." The exhibition explores the capacity of the music video, a popular and commercial form since the 1980s, to transcend and transform the limits of the genre - repetitiveness, visual eye candy, and the primacy of the singer performing their latest hit single - and to make a short film that traffics in the melodic, rhythmic, and lyrical structures of a song while extending the experience of the viewer beyond the song and into a world-not-yet-seen. Refreshments will be served; cash bar.
