Landmarks Video Presents "Goldrush" by Alix Pearlstein

Monday, June 30 at 8:00am to 9:00pm

Art Building (ART), Atrium 2301 SAN JACINTO BLVD , Austin, Texas 78712

On view for the month of June 2014. A seemingly invaluable object – a white rectangular panel – is placed in the middle of a black box theater. A group of nine, each wearing an article of metallic gold clothing set upon the task of ripping it apart. They tear it to shreds, taunting, fighting and climbing all over each other to greedily gather every last shard of it for themselves. As an independent yet related work to "After the Fall," "Goldrush" posits a cathartic aftermath that is at once apocalyptic and suggestively orgiastic.

Videos are screened on a media station in the Art Building. Adjacent to art history classrooms and the Visual Arts Center galleries, the media station is in an open atrium that provides stadium seating for viewing. Headsets to optimize sound may be checked out from the Visual Arts Center reception desk during operating hours.
