Video Data Bank TV, School of the Art Institute of Chicago


School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Video Data Bank TV presents Notes on Black Video: 1987–2001, featuring work from Lawrence Andrews, Thomas Allen Harris, Leah (Franklin) Gilliam, Tony Cokes, and Art Jones. The program acts as a thematic survey of black video work from 1987–2001 highlighting work that demonstrates a practice of early (and continuous) black videomaking that intuitively relies on discursively approaching the mass image and popular culture, structures of meaning/knowledge, and the limitations of perception and what it seeks to render definable and concrete, through the amorphous, fluid perspectives present in the intersectional black American experience.
