A few weeks ago I went to a lecture for the E-Fux Video rental system that has been installed at the SERT gallery at the Carpenter Center in Harvard. Since then, I have been renting videos every other day -
The "exhibition" runs from February 8–April 13, 2007
It was created to give a wider audience to video art and video artists. These tapes that usually go for $75 to rent from a distributer are here for your renting pleasure at NO COST. Renting is free, Membership is free!
Video art was created as a low cost art form where it could be displayed anywhere. Living rooms, bathrooms, basements, kitchens, alley ways, could become a gallery in which to view art. E-Flux does the same and delivers that same aesthetic to us the culture creators.
I urge everyone to check out this exhibition before it goes away. With every rental I have found something that interests me. Right now I'm on this kick with these russian video artists:
Viatcheslav Mizan & Alexander Shaburov
