MOMENT: A Video Exploration

November 9- December 10
Opening reception November 10, 4-6pm


An exploration of contemporary video-based art practices. Digital and time based media have opened up seemingly limitless possibilities in how artists communicate their worlds. Designed to dovetail with the new PSU Art Department’s foundation course, “Art Foundations: Digital and New Media”, this exhibit features just a few examples of ways in which video is being used in contemporary artists’ practices. Featured artists include Anne Beal, Zack Bent, Kent Anderson Butler, Jacob Galle, Ron Hollingshead, CM Judge.

Presented with video presentation design support by Todd Kent.

Video imagery inhabits our lives. It is powerful; inspiring, informative, thought- provoking at best and potentially harmful, manipulative and destructive at its worst. Navigating these digital waters is an essential skill in our world today. How do our assumptions about the medium affect our choices as teachers and artists?

Do you use video/ time-based media as part of your arts teaching practice – or would you like to?

Do you address students’ digital language in the design of your arts experiences – or would you like to learn how to?

Join us for a day of discovery and discussion, which will include a guided exploration of the current Drerup exhibit, MOMENT: A Video Exploration; a screening and group response of FEMLINK, an international video collage project, led by curator and intermedia artist C.M.Judge; an informal panel with experienced artists and educators; and a hands-on activity designed to inspire steps, ideas, and lessons you can take back to your students.

Bring your ideas, successes, and technology tools to share – and come with questions, too!

Professional development credit available
