Video Art from Sam Easterson Coming to IMA

The Indianapolis Museum of Art will feature a special exhibition of video art by Sam Easterson, a San Francisco-based artist who has been collecting footage from the perspective of animals and plants since 1998.

Nature Holds My Camera: The Video Art of Sam Easterson will include short videos of animals in their environments. The videos allow viewers to imagine life from a different point of view through seeing the world from the perspective of animals. The footage is captured from animals in action: running or moving slowly through their habitats, interacting with other animals, drinking and eating, and recording their own shadows.

Check it out here.

The exhibition opens 24 June, closing 15 July.

Located at 4000 Michigan Road, the IMA is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday and Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. (The IMA is closed Mondays and Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s day.)
