Works by Gary Hill, Pierre Huyghe, William Kentridge and Pipilotti Rist added to the Aurora Video Library

The Aurora staff are very excited about our new library acquisition, Point Of View: An Anthology of the Moving Image.  Come to our library at 1524 Sul Ross to see these amazing works that you can't see anywhere else in Houston! 

Point Of View: An Anthology of the Moving Image
is a DVD series that features eleven leading artists from different generations and cultural perspectives, who are among the most important artists working in film, video, and digital imagery today: Francis Alys , David Claerbout, Douglas Gordon, Gary Hill, Pierre Huyghe, Joan Jonas, Isaac Julien, William Kentridge, Paul McCarthy, Pipilotti Rist, and Anri Sala.

The anthology includes eleven separate DVDs in a boxed set. Each DVD features a newly-commissioned work; an in-depth interview with the artist conducted by Dan Cameron, senior curator for the New Museum of Contemporary Art, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist of the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, or Richard Meyer, Associate Professor, Department of Art History, University of Southern California; an image library of the artist's previous work; and bibliographical material.

If you or your school would like to arrange a special viewing, please make a reservation with our lovely, learned Media and Education Library Guru, Camilo Gonzalez (  Special thanks to the Brown Foundation for their support of our Video Library.
