So Visual Rhythm segues from a continuous-loop screening of Brakhage’s 16mm Persian Series to Sterling Crispin’s holographic digital print to a reactive sound-and-light installation by David Fodel and Paco Proano. The museum itself got a black-box makeover by Mexico City native Ricardo Rendón, who covered the windows with drywall and then drilled designs into the covering. In all, there are works by eleven Colorado and international artists, but that represents just a fraction of the work that Brakhage inspired. “We can’t show everything,” Sertic admits. “But we can give a slice of what’s going on. The entire museum will be filled with nothing but moving shapes and colors.”
Visual Rhythm opens with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m. today at BMoCA, 1750 13th Street in Boulder; the show continues until September 9 with a complement of related events, including next week’s MediaLive 2012 festival. For more information, go to www.bmoca.org or call 303-443-2122.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: July 5. Continues through Sept. 9, 2012
