Highlights from the Hallwalls Video Collection, featuring recently restored documentation of historic Buffalo performances by Laurie Anderson, Ann Magnuson, Karen Finley, Rachel Rosenthal, Constance DeJong, and Ethyl Eichelberger.

Since 2004, selected recordings from the Hallwalls Video Collection have been preserved thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Television & Video Preservation Foundation. Hallwalls has worked with Michael Basinski and his staff at UB's Poetry Collection to make the Hallwalls Archive, including screening DVDs of these treated video recordings, accessible to researchers interested in the history of Hallwalls and the performing arts. For more information, visit Hallwalls' archives page.

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
