Videos By Daniel Reeves: A Selection

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Daniel Reeves has been a major force in sculpture, film, video, and installation since 1970. His videos focus on personal, political, and spiritual themes, from socially condoned violence to the divine nature of existence. Since 1982 Reeves has concentrated on developing a video poetics bent on exploring personal transformation and individual responsibility. For Reeves’ experience and conviction shape not only his content, but relate directly to his commitment to revitalizing the sacred in art, making works of universal significance and profound understanding of the human condition. For his first Cinematheque program Daniel will show a range of videos made between 1981 and 2001: Obsessive Becoming, Smothering Dreams, Sabda, A Mosaic for the Kali Yuga and his latest, One With Everything.
