Everson Museum 1974 – Video Art Conference

This event was my initiation into world of video art, with some of its best known names represented.  I made this film as part student television project.  Yes it’s pretty bad but I think the subject matter is important. Featured here is  “T.V. Garden” and “Video Buddha” by Nam June Paik. Also works by Frank Gillette and Peter Campus. Sitting while making his presentation was long haired Willoughby Sharp.  He seemed very formal at the time, a far cry from approachable, friendly fellow I knew before he passed away.  I think I see Bill Viola in there who was based in Syracuse and involved with Synapse at the time. The YouTube blurb contains more information.
