Burt Barr: Solid Water


Burt Barr, Vee-Formation (video still), 2004. video installation.

August 27– October 9, 2004
at USFCAM East Gallery

New York based artist Burt Barr has been making video-works since the 80s. Often using black and white and working from a singular viewpoint, he transforms common objects and everyday situations into intensely focused paeans of stylistic beauty. At CAM he will show a series of video projections, all with water as an element, produced from 1999–2004. Included in the exhibition will be a new work titled, Vee-Formation, developed in response to the design of CAM’s galleries. Wave, his large scale digital print published by Graphicstudio in 2003, will also be on view.
