Jamie Davidovich, Still from Blue, Red, Yellow, 1974.

For the fall 2012 edition of Fade In, a program of specially selected films and videos projected from the windows of the Art Building, the VAC presents Jaime Davidovich’s 1974 silent performance video Blue, Red, Yellow. Davidovich is a conceptual, video, and installation artist, as well as a pioneering activist for the potential of artist-run, local cable television programming, who "paints" on an electronic canvas with primary colors by covering a snow-filled TV screen with colored tape. 

Selected in response to Now What It Never Was and Future Regions—two distinct painting exhibitions on view at the VAC this fall—Davidovich's video marks a moment when the premise of painting and performance, coupled with new technology, expanded artistic possibilities by producing exciting new hybrids like Blue, Red, Yellow. The film runs continuously on a loop until midnight each evening through December 8.
