O, Modern and Beautiful History

At what point does video documentation change from just recorded events to something worthy of exhibition in a gallery setting? When does a filmed document become worthy not of critical cinematic analysis, but of critical art analysis? Why aren't historical representations considered "art"? Those are the types of questions artists Brian Fridge, Jill Baker and Jonathan Rattner, Mike Morris and Daniel Horn are aiming to answer with their varied takes on document making and its potential as seen in The Digital Document at CentralTrak, 800 Exposition Ave. The exhibition opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday and runs (noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays) through December 4. Call 214-824-9302 or visit centraltrak.org.
Sat., Nov. 6, 6-8 p.m.; Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Nov. 6. Continues through Dec. 4, 2010
