July 13 – November 10, 2012
Visual Rhythm presents non-narrative, abstract, and immersive experimental film, video, and digital art, connecting recent directions in media art to earlier modes of expression.
The exhibition features works by Jeremy Blake, Stan Brakhage, Sterling Crispin, Katy Dove, David Fodel & Paco Proano, Sara Ludy, Rob Miller, Ricardo Rendón, Rick Silva, & Fernando Velázquez.
Focusing on shape, color, design, environment, and audio-visual experience, the exhibition encompasses the entire museum, with different areas dedicated to distinct means of presentation, ranging from film and video projection, to screen and computer based displays.
While the works on view differ considerably in appearance and conceptual methodology, each appeals to the sense of seeing as an experience, rather than a means of conveying information or visual meaning. Their non-narrative, impressionistic, sometimes poetic qualities may invoke emotional response to intense sensual stimulation.
Underscoring its universal appeal and the fact that this kind of work is being produced all over the world, the exhibition includes national as well as international artists. Significant contributions by artists with strong connections to Colorado are highlighted in the context, with special acknowledgment of the pioneering work of Stan Brakhage.
