Landmarks Video Presents "The Elevator" by Burt Barr

A woman with curly hair and a blue dress

Since the mid-1980s, Burt Barr has exhibited a decisive, straightforward style of art making, but not without humor or experimentation. His employment of various techniques allows us to observe and appreciate minutiae in alternative ways. In The Elevator (1985), two women relay the details of their evening as an opening and closing elevator door interrupts and resumes the story. Their ramblings become absorbing narratives, and the disruption of the door only leaves the viewer wanting more.

The Elevator by Burt Barr screens from 1 May through 31 May on a media station in the ART building located on the corner of East 23rd Street and San Jacinto Boulevard.

Event Date:
