For nearly a decade, the work and archive of pioneering video artist Douglas Davis (1933-2014) languished in an abandoned house near Woodstock, New York, after it was moved from his SoHo apartment upon his death. Davis’s live satellite performances were seminal exercises in the use of interactive technology as a medium for art and communications. For the first time in nearly 30 years, a selection of his video performances, publicity posters, prints and photographs will be shown in a joint exhibition at CREATE Council on the Arts (Catskill) and Hudson Hall (Hudson) to celebrate Davis’s nearly lost work.

  • Hudson Hall’s programming is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of the Governor and the New York Legislature.
