A Brief History of Video Art

Salon conversation hosted by Kat Bossi and Tamara Al-Mashouk
Thursday, March 10, 2016 | 6:30-8pm
Mills Gallery at the BCA
Free and Open to the Public

What is video art, anyway? This session will focus on the rapidly expanding genre of video. We'll start by viewing a few excerpts of video art from the past and present, after which we will open the floor for other participants in the conversation to share their own videos. Please come with a favorite video or two in mind so that we can view and discuss it together (we can queue it up as long as it's online). This can be any kind of video: a music video, a cat video on YouTube, or a piece of video art you might see in a gallery. We would like this to be an open discussion, but also hope to explore a few key ideas, including what exactly we like about watching videos, how recent technology has changed the art form, and what the future of video art might look like.

About our hosts: Kat Bossi and Tamara Al-Mashouk are second year MFA candidates at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. They work primarily in video and co-produce exhibitions and events together. Bossi is a Somerville native whose work explores the performance of gender, sexuality, and identity on the internet. Al-Mashouk uses video to find new perspectives on various subjects, from the body to her life growing up in Bahrain.
