As part of our Guest curator series we welcome Sara Goodman presenting:
VIDEO WORSHIP is a film screening of CRT Installations, video art, music videos, and animations curated by Sara Goodman. After endless hours of scrolling Instagram as a daily practice and being in constant dialogue with other artist across the country and globe, Sara has put together a night of videos to be viewed off the little devices and on the big screen. Videos range from hyper psychedelic and radically abstract to politically minded and narrative driven. All viz are threaded together by coded pixels and obsolete hardware and whether the tech is new or old, one thing is clear, the images are delicious. So come drink up.
