Urban Video Project
Visitors to the Malzman Gallery can engage select works commissioned for Light Work’s Urban Video Project and UVP Insights, a video series blending documentation of the projection on the façade, clips from the exhibited work, and the artist’s own words.
In 2012, Light Work began the Urban Video Project (UVP) commission program, inviting emerging and mid-career artists working in experimental media to create new work for projection on the Everson Museum’s north façade.
Working in collaboration with Onondaga County and the Everson Museum of Art, Light Work relocated their most powerful projector, relaunching with an inaugural exhibition from SU alum and video art pioneer Bill Viola.
UVP has grown into a robust exhibition, event, and commission program, adding a new chapter to the region’s legacy as a birthplace of video art.
