The Vault (August - October 2014)

Immortal Kombat: Curated by Sarah Paul (Cleveland, OH)

Daniel Barrow, Nao Bustamante, Jim Finn, Zak Long, Tara Mateik, Cat Mazza, Power Animal System, Chris Skinner, Rachel Yurkovich
August 22 - October 17, 2014

Immortal Kombat is a collection of video works from artists who use the medium as an ambiguous mouthpiece for their ideologies.

If the combatants and anti-heroes in this curated selection of videos explained themselves, the magical and bewildering sensation of watching these works would dissipate. There is a steady undercurrent of disruption throughout the narratives, as the artists' social agendas push us beyond normative obstacles and into mysterious territories. The characters entwine their politics with play, creating lush and irresistible images of blurred utopias.

Participating Artists:
Daniel Barrow (Montreal, Quebec)
Nao Bustamante (Troy, NY)
Jim Finn (New City, NY)
Zak Long (San Francisco, CA)
Tara Mateik (New York, NY)
Cat Mazza (Boston, MA)
Power Animal System (New York, NY)
Chris Skinner (Sheffield, UK)
Rachel Yurkovich (Cleveland Heights, OH)

The Vault functions as a media flat file--a converted walk-in safe where audiences can experience a variety of video and sound art. Guest curators add selections to The Vault on a quarterly basis.
