Social Video ArtOpen To The Public
This video installation brings together works by visual artist and Duke professor Pedro Lasch that are as varied as their settings. Projected in large scale inside the Ruby's Murthy Agora, all works have been meticulously co-edited with Michael Blair to become video art in its own terms—as opposed to simply documenting Lasch’s social and site-specific art.
This event is open to the general public during certain hours. Please check gallery hours in the description below.
