Futility

5th Annual Open Call for Works in Video

12 January – 3 February 2018

Aggregate Space Gallery is pleased to present this selection of video works from our annual open call for time-based media. For the 5th time, we intentionally chose to forgo a themed call so that a cohesive show may be discovered in the relationships between some of the 80+ submissions. This year, the video works that emerged question life’s purpose, striving at the impossible, and how failure may be necessary to bring us closer to find meaning in our often-futile choices. Although individual works deal in broad themes like creativity, love, spirituality, and hope, each of these videos remind us of fleeting efforts and the results that elude us, some even begging the question, “what’s the point?”.

Featuring works by Kelsey S. Brewer, Laneya Billingsley, Jamee Crusan, Nelmarie du Preez, Brynda Glazier, Tim Kopra, Wrik Mead, Allison Roberts, Gary Setzer, and Angela Willetts.
