Transmissions, a public-projection project of short video pieces, comes to Olin Library on March 10. The artists behind the videos—Wyndi Desouza, Yihuang Lu, Yvonne Osei, and Natalie Rainer—are graduate students in the Sam Fox School’s MFA program. Each made a short piece in response to a call for work addressing topics like artificial life, personal relationships, and gender politics. On the evening of March 10, their videos will be projected through the back window of the Special Collections classroom and run continuously overnight. Stop by and have a look!

Transmissions is part of the Transversal Project, a collaborative undertaking between artists, institutions, and communities to create opportunities for experimental public art exhibitions. The goals of the Transversal Project are to provide chances for artists to make and exhibit work in a built environment, to heighten critical public discourse surrounding the importance of art making and cultural production, to offer an alternative mode of exhibition to the typical gallery or museum, and to create a public forum for the exploration of art as a communal and projective experience.
