The Bowling Green State University Advanced Digital Video Art 2019 will present a two-day exhibit “Desire for the Intangible” in Needle Hall in City Park, 520 Conneaut Ave., April 25 and 26.
A public reception will be held Thursday, April 25 from 6-8 p.m. Light refreshments provided. A public critique with guest critic Cameron Granger will be held Friday, April 26, 5-7 p.m.
“Desire for the Intangible” features the work of the Advanced Digital Video Art class at Bowling Green State University. This is an open invitation to explore the metaphysical. Through various media including video installations, photography, video, animatics, and illustrations, the artists have conceptualized their desire to connect with the ethereal. Is it possible to embody harmonious existence with nature, trauma, art, spirituality,
capitalism, technology, alienation, and communication?
In housing the exhibition at the historic Needle Hall, the artists challenge goers’ expectations by bringing them into a beautiful recreation hall. Celebrating this gallery’s gathering potential, many of the artworks will tread against the natural surroundings as digital pieces, forging a coalescence with electronics and earth within the subliminal space. A moment with each work will reveal an inclination for self-reflection: a conversation with the present image and one’s past and future.
