The University of Richmond Museums presents Feedback: Video by Artists, on view from January 12 to March 18, 2011, in the Lora Robins Gallery of Design from Nature. The exhibition consists of eight videos, divided into four categories, and accompanied by two lectures and a five-part screening series. Together, these works are designed to set contemporary artists’ videos in a historical context. Focusing on the distinct features of this medium, the exhibition highlights video in its nascent form with an accompanying series of screenings of contemporary video art.

Highlights of the exhibition include: Vertical Roll by Joan Jonas (American, born 1936), Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman by Dara Birnbaum (American, born 1946), and Four More Years by TVTV.

The exhibition consists of videos that all showcase four main approaches of independent media production during the 1970s: performance, documentary, appropriation, and narrative. Divided into these four categories, each part of the exhibition runs for a two-week period. The exhibition videos correspond with four separate video art screenings of contemporary works by artists creating similarly themed videos and two artists’ lectures. For more information about these screenings and lectures please see the website or the Feedback brochure.
