Sicardi Gallery opening reception: Video Project 2015
Sicardi Gallery hosts an exhibition of video by Dias and Riedweg, Miguel Angel Ríos and Melanie Smith, on view through April 4. The exhibition will feature recent works by each artist, looped continuously in a single-channel projection in the Project Room Gallery.
Begun in 2013, Project Video is Sicardi Gallery's series of exhibitions dedicated to innovation in video. Including a curated selection of short videos, each exhibition places contemporary artists from Latin America in dialogue, suggesting diverse approaches to issues of urban life, humor, modernism and mortality.
This year's iteration includes Melanie Smith and Rafael Ortega's Aztec Stadium. Malleable Deed (2010), Miguel Angel Ríos' A Matar (2004) and Time Out (2004) and Dias and Riedweg's Crime Master (2013). Total run time for Project Video 2015 is 21 minutes.
