Video Arts Night – AURORA
April 1 @ 8:00 pm - April 2 @ 12:00 am
A pop-up video art program presented every Friday night in April throughout downtown Dallas
In celebration of Dallas Arts Month, AURORA and Downtown Dallas, Inc. are preparing a month-long program of projections at parks and outdoor surfaces in Downtown Dallas. The five events are taking place each Friday evening in April 2022, from sunset (8 pm) to midnight, at West End Square, Pegasus Plaza (supported by Joule Hotel), and the Dallas Arts District.
A diverse team of emerging and established curators is bringing their vision to public spaces across the city. The inaugural program on the night of April 1st is curated by the UNT New Media Cooperative. For the following three—on April 8th, 15th, and 22nd—we’ve invited Bart Weiss, an esteemed Dallas curator, educator, festival director, and multi-talent in the fields of film and video art. Andrew F. Scott, multimedia artist and professor at The University of Texas at Dallas, is preparing the program for the closing night on April 29th.
From 6 to 10 pm, in parallel with the curated program, visitors will be able to enjoy outdoor artisanal markets hosted by Downtown Dallas, Inc.
