Futility

12 Jan - 3 Feb 2018

Aggregate Space Gallery is pleased to present this selection of video works from our annual open call for time-based media. For the 5th time, we intentionally choose to forgo a themed call so that a cohesive show may be discovered in the relationships between some of the 80+ submissions. This year, the video works that emerged question life’s purpose, striving at the impossible, and how failure may be necessary to bring us closer to find meaning in our often-futile choices. Although individual works deal in broad themes like creativity, love, spirituality, and hope, each of these videos remind us of fleeting efforts and the results that elude us, some even begging the question, “what’s the point?”.
