Lightness, October 2011
Curated by Amanda Manitach and Serrah Russell

Lightness features local artists working (at least for one night) in digital video, analog projection, light installation and other illuminating mediums. The term lightness connotes a philosophical weightlessness and mobility while also alluding to the physical ethereality of soundless video and illumination not intended to serve a strictly functional purpose. In Lightness both the compelling glow and the obscuring glare of light media are explored within the bounds of intimate and public space.

Peering through the lenses of three diverse local curators, the exhibits will showcase a wide array of visual art genres and uncover how the contemporary visual art scene interacts with music and comes to life in our city and the festival setting.
