Six heads on display

six heads

A video art installation that coincides with the Virginia Film Festival opened Oct. 26 at the U.Va. Art Museum. “Six Heads” by Bill Viola, an internationally acclaimed video artist, will run through Dec. 23. Viola’s framed video animates the subject’s face moving through a series of expressions — joy, sorrow, anger, fear, awe and sleep or dreaming — in extremely slow motion. The exhibit is an example of experimental media art that is characterized by extreme time, or the cinema’s ability to freeze, stretch and compress time, which plays on the Film Festival’s theme of “Speed.” Richard Herskowitz, director of the festival, will give two gallery talks “Video Art and Bill Viola” on Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. and Nov. 16 at 12:30 p.m. For details about the exhibit or information about the
museum, call 924-3592, or visit the museum’s Web site: http://www.virginia.edu/artmuseum/.
