Project turns on

Located on the 11th floor of the University Library, Project Channel is the U of L Art Gallery's satellite space to provide access to a range of local, national and international video art.

"For decades, artists have used the low cost possibilities of video to experiment with technology, mimic popular mass media, and tell stories that are often missed by the mainstream," explains Dr. Josephine Mills, curator/director, U of L Art Gallery. "The gallery will curate selections of video art for Project Channel's set of touch-screens. Many of the videos will also be purchased to build up a collection."

Viewers can either watch the latest selection or browse through the holdings on the three screens.

"The U of L Art Gallery Project Channel's innovative approach combines the strengths of curated screenings with on-demand library viewing to create easy-to-use access to video art," she says. "We want to thank the U of L Library and V Tape for their assistance with this project. We invite everyone to come check it out."
