It's Back: The Program, Art Beyond the Frame

by Anne Bothwell 7 Jun 2010 2:12 PM

Video art takes the spotlight once again, as The Program returns. To get ready, two videos: watch filmmaker Brent Green tell the story behind his “Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then” and check out the trailer for “Double Take.”


The Program emerged two  years ago, as part of Dallas Video Fest. The series of screenings at Conduit Gallery spotlighted a grab bag of contemporary video art.

Now it’s back. The Program returns this summer, but this time, it’ll spread out a bit, with individual screenings at the Angelika and the Dallas Museum of Art, as well as an exhibition at Conduit.

Here’s how things are shaping up, though check The Program’s Facebook page – or the Art&Seek calendar for additional events as they are booked.

Thursday July 22 27: Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, by Brent Green, at the DMA

I’m not sure what’s more amazing – the story of Leonard Wood, which inspired this piece, or how Green made the film.  Green will tell you a little bit about it here.

Sat. July 31: Opening night exhibition of The Second Program, curated by Charles Dee Mitchell,  at Conduit Gallery. Work from David Askevold, Jon Gitelson, Matthew Day Jackson, Luke Murphy, Jason Rhoades, Erin Shirreff and Bill Viola.  (Exhibition continues through Aug. 28)

Wed. Aug. 4: The Rape of the Sabine Women, by Eve Sussman and the Rufus Corporation, at Angelika

Sat. Aug. 7: An evening of shorts, curated by Bart Weiss,  at Conduit Gallery

Wed. Aug. 18: Double Take, by Johan Grimonprez.  Lots of trailers out there, but here’s a short and appropriately eerie clip from the film.

The Program is sponsored by Conduit Gallery, Dallas Museum of Art and the Video Association of Dallas.

  • Thanks for posting the interview with Brent Green, Anne. I quickly became obsessed and watched everything he has posted on his Vimeo. He’s really amazingly talented.
