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 Bartlett)
