Videoooohhhhh

Video art came into existence just over 50 years ago. Since then, the medium has literally exploded and evolves daily. What was once viewable on a single monitor can now be simultaneously streamed by millions. Works that required specialized technology and extensive software training can now be created on a phone app. This availability has redefined a creative discipline that had no concrete definition in its beginnings. Video has the potential to be the most accessible art medium, through format and content. It can be literal and relatable, recontextualizing media and material we are already familiar with, while simultaneously abstracted, experimental, and exploring conceptual content. 

This exhibition, Videoooohhhhh, is a survey of video artworks from CSUN students in the Photography/Video program in 2020. The works range from undergraduates in their first video course to our graduate students and alumni. The breadth and diversity of the work is indicative of the level of experimentation in our program. Projects range from explorations of abstraction and appropriation, social media and pop culture critique, to narrative film and documentary approaches.
