For the fall 2012 edition of Fade In 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.

About the Program

Fade In projects video works onto screens inside the Visual Arts Center, which are viewable through the bay windows that face the southeast lawn of the Art Building along 23rd and Trinity streets. The videos are activated at dusk each evening and play continuously until dawn.
