On Contemporary Painting & Digital Video...
Same Same, BUT?
Tuesday July 31st, 2pm
University of Washington Campus
Raitt Hall room 121
Please join DXARTS and B-term Digital Video Foundations Course as we welcome NYC based artist collective Same Same But Different (Amanda Valdez, Jay Gaskill, and Fabian Tabibian) . Following their artist presentations, Molly Mac and students from her DXARTS digital video course will host an active, open forum discussion exploring the way that formal issues of time, narrative and composition in these contemporary painters' practices may overlap with and inform issues in digital video artmaking (and vice versa).
Seattle's Soil Gallery hosts Same Same But Different for an exhibition August 1- Sept 1, 2012. Opening Reception August 2, 6-8pm. The group recently presented an exciting debut exhibition as a collective at Brooklyn's Parallel Art Space, and will continue to tour their collaborative around the US in 2012-2013. As a collective they are committed to engaging with unique creative communities and conversations in each city they visit.
