CROSSROADS 2022: program 1

beauty can fool you

beauty can fool you

CROSSROADS 2022 opens with a fit of pop delirium, lucidly polymorphous studies of precarious emotions, candied poisons, anomalous states of mind and matter and the alluring mephiticities of the capitalist spectacle. Percussive psychogeographic wanders and prismatic nature studies rub against coded love letters and mediations of disaster—always promised; never arriving—while past and present tenses blend and promises of sublime erotics flicker tantalizingly beyond our grasp. 

This program is dedicated to the memory of video artist Dale Hoyt (1961–2022).
