XANADU: A synchronized
four-channel video installation that probes society's self-destructive
impulses is on exhibit in the Ezra and Cecile Zilhka Gallery through
March 4. The installation, named Xanadu, is designed by Robert
Boyd of Brooklyn, N.Y.
Videos, often projected four-at-a-time, are
shown on the gallery walls while thumping dance music is played under a
twirling disco ball.
Hundreds of hours of archival footage of
doomsday cults, iconic political figures, and global fundamentalist
movements were mined for the exhibition. Gallery hours are noon to 4
p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and noon to 8 p.m. on Fridays. (Photos by Olivia
