This fall marks the twelfth season of Landmarks Video, a curated program of highly regarded and influential video art from the past six decades. Launching September 1, videos by Michael Robinson, Michael Snow, and Luis Voldovin—originally scheduled for last season but postponed due to COVID-19—will be screened, along with new selections by Robyn O’Neil, Polina Kanis, Kawita Vatanajyankur, and others. 

Running September 2021 - August 2022, the new season showcases both national and international artists. Highlights include Garrett Bradley’s Alone (2017), an exploration of mass incarnation in the United States through the experience of a young Black couple in New Orleans; The Great Silence (2014) by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, which investigates the relationship between humans, animals, and the cosmos in the search for intelligent life; and Allison Schulnik’s single-channel animation, Moth (2019), comprised of hundreds of gouache paintings created by Schulnik, set against a composition by Erik Satie.
