Roots & Culture
During the summer of 2007, Roots & Culture gallery is hosting a three-part video screening series titled Zummer Tapez. The goal for the screenings is to present work by a lineup of particularly interesting artists, and to provide these artists with a forum for a more social and entertaining artist talk. Each installment of the series features a VHS mixtape created specifically for the screening. The artists have been invited to create one-hour tapes that showcase their influences and interests as well as examples of their own work. Each artist will introduce his tape and provide comments during thescreenings.
