Peter Sarkisian Video Exhibition to Close at UW Art Museum

May 13, 2010

The University of Wyoming Art Museum exhibition "Peter Sarkisian: Video Works, 1996-2008" will close Saturday, May 15.

The museum is located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie. It is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.

Sarkisian explores the spatial and perceptive possibilities of video, film and sculpture through multi-media works that challenge perceptions of reality and illusion. The show is a small retrospective that features signature works and conveys how the artist has considered and resolved various approaches to integrating video into temporal and spatial experiences.

Trained as a filmmaker, Sarkisian became interested 15 years ago in the possibilities of combining video with sculpture and, more recently, of video projection. Since then he has created numerous works with moving images.
