Cheryl Pope in Austin “Landmarks”

Starting on September 1, 2013, you can see Cheryl Pope‘s “Up Against” (2010) video at the University of Texas, Austin, campus. Curated as part of the university’s Landmarks Public Art Program, the video will be on view through the end of the month, and will receive between 2,000-3,000 visitors per day. Additionally, the program curators will also write an essay about Cheryl’s work and publish part of the video on their website and mobile app.  This original content draws about 4,500 unique visitors per week, and will be a uniquely digital way to experience Cheryl’s work online.

Says the program curator:

“Landmarks Video introduces students and the general public to the most highly regarded and influential works of video art from the past five decades. The program aims to familiarize the university community with important titles, stimulate conversation and research, and situate the genre of video art alongside the presentation of more traditional works.”

Other invited artists to the Landmarks video program have included Vito Acconci, Lynda Benglis, Jenny Holzer, Mike Kelley, William Kentridge, and Bruce Nauman, among many others.

To view Cheryl’s video, please visit the ART building located on the corner of East 23rd Street and San Jacinto Boulevard. 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 from 8 am to 9 pm daily. Headsets to optimize sound may be checked out from the Visual Arts Center reception desk during operating hours.
