Landmarks Video Presents The Elevator by Burt Barr
May. 1 - May. 31

Since the mid-1980s, Burt Barr has exhibited a decisive, straightforward style of art making, but not without humor or experimentation. His employment of various techniques allows us to observe and appreciate minutiae in alternative ways. In The Elevator (1985), two women relay the details of their evening as an opening and closing elevator door interrupts and resumes the story. Their ramblings become absorbing narratives, and the disruption of the door only leaves the viewer wanting more.
