Sound + Vision: Disco Desert by Austin Video Bee
Setting out to capture the surreality, mutability, and possibility found in the West Texas landscape, Austin Video Bee (AVB) traveled to Presidio, Texas and the adjacent area to collect footage and construct a temporary shelter that doubles as a projection structure for this edition of Sound + Vision. Using the power of the five-person collective to gather a multitude of desert images and sounds, AVB translated and reassembled the footage, augmenting it in post-production, to draw out the fantastic elements of the landscape. The installation will fill the interior space with projections and sound to envelop the VAC viewer in an immersive sensory experience.

Music in Architecture — Architecture in Music:
The Infinite Space Between
By Joshua Lantzy, Kirsten Volness and Jacob Richman
With new and traditional compositional techniques and physical and sonic materials, and deeper notions of “performance” in hand, the School of Architecture and the Butler School of Music created the MIA-AIM Design and Composition. Their site-specific project, a winning selection, creates an architectural musical instrument exploring how the movement of people through a large space, as well as their movements in relationship to one another, can be utilized to create music.

Lunch Break: Red Without Blue
This special edition is featured in conjunction with the exhibition Queer State(s). Join us for an artistic and groundbreaking portrayal of gender, identity, and the unswerving bond of twinship despite transformation. An honest portrayal of a family in turmoil, Red Without Blue follows a pair of identical twins as one transitions from male to female. Watch this fiercely honest documentary directed by Brooke Sebold, Benita Sills, and Todd Sills, and stay for a post-film conversation with representatives from The Gender and Sexuality Center afterwards.

Selected films by Jack Smith, a special screening presented in
conjunction with the exhibition, Queer State(s)
Jack Smith was one of the most accomplished and influential underground artists from the 1960s to the 1980s, and was a key figure in the cultural history of Downtown New York film, performance, and art. From the late 1950s until his death from AIDS in 1989, Smith was chiefly recognized for his work in film and performance. Innovative and idiosyncratic, Smith explored and developed a deceptively frivolous camp aesthetic, importing allusions to B-Grade Hollywood films and elements of social and political critique into the arena of high art. Less celebrated than the many people he inspired, Smith’s multi-media influence is evident in the works of a broad segment of the American Avant Garde, especially in the work of Andy Warhol, Ken Jacobs, John Waters, George Kuchar, Scott and Beth B.
