Outside of the Box

January 12 – March 9, 2002
USF Contemporary Art Museum

Outside of the Box features recent work by leading international artists who not only think differently about subject and content, but propose unconventional modes of presentation for their video-based art. These artists extend video beyond the television monitor and often outside of traditional exhibition spaces. Artists include: Ron Athey, Jim Campbell, Maria Marshall, Mariko Mori, Tony Oursler, Chris Cunningham, Wolfgang Staehle, Daniel Pflumm and Sam Taylor-Wood.

Carlos Amorales, Fighting Evil (with style).

USF CAM is pleased to present a new video installation by Carlos Amorales: Fighting Evil (with style), based on the popular Lucha Libre (professional wrestling) of the artist's native Mexico. "Wherever Carlos Amorales is, there's name-calling, vicious threats, gambling, and bloodthirsty crowds all steeped with the anticipation of violence. And the gallery doors haven't even opened yet. Inside, Amorales is preparing his fight for justice."

Opening Reception: Outside of the Box and Carlos Amorales Friday, January 11, 7-9pm, CAM
