Romantic Notions

Videotapes & Films on Love

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Valentine’s Day Eve Festival

Video artist and art activist Linda Gibson presents a program of experimental films and tapes by artists of diverse cultural backgrounds who offer intimate glimpses of their experiences with love: falling in love, being in love, and losing love. Works include La Idea Que Habitamos (The Idea We Live In) by Pilar Rodriguez (1990), a visually rich meditation on how a home reflects the family which inhabits it, and how love grounds the meaning of home; What Goes Around/Comes Around (1987) by Philip Mallory Jones, a spare, intense evocation of sexual and metaphoric love, desire and loss; The Message (1993) by Cauleen Smith, a woman’s look at male sensuality; and a hearty sampler of other seasonal sweets.
