The Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) Art and Film Committees will showcase a gender and politics video art history exhibition on April 13 in Union’s South’s Marquee Cinema.
The committees’ student leaders selected films that focus on gender, politics, and how both relate to how society functions.
Committee members chose multiple films for this exhibition included but not limited to “An I For An I” by Lawrence Andrews and “Perfect Leader” by Max Almy. Together, the exhibition’s films will showcase 40 years of video art.
“The works will carry viewers through emotional highs and lows,” said Haley Fuhr, WUD Art associate director of marketing. “The collection mixes sarcasm and seriousness to take everyone on a really unique journey through video art.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public. The student-run showcase will begin at 7:30 p.m. with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.
