Peter Sarkisian: Video Works, 1996 – 2008


May 19 – Sep 9, 2012

Description

Video artist Peter Sarkisian (American, b. 1965) explores the spatial and perceptive possibilities of video, film, and sculpture. Sarkisian combines three-dimensional screens and objects with video projections, which cause the viewer to question his or her own observations. This small retrospective focuses on the various approaches Sarkisian has taken to involve his audience in perceptual engagement.

 

Peter Sarkisian: Video Works, 1996–2008 is organized by the University of Wyoming Art Museum and curated by Susan Moldenhauer. Funded in part by an anonymous sponsor, Roy and Caryl Cline, FMC Corporation, Murdock Law Firm, P.C., Wyoming Public Radio, and the National Advisory Board of the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
