he Mt. San Jacinto Campus Art Gallery is currently hosting a think video exhibition titled “Dusk to Dust,” which showcases rare video works by celebrated artists Cristopher Cichocki, Cameron Gainer, Marc Horowitz and Dawn Kasper. The exhibit will run Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., until Feb. 24.
This collaborative show explores through a Sisyphean lens how people experience the passage of time, the inevitability of mortality and the inescapable banalities of life.
Cichocki is an internationally recognized artist from Coachella Valley who recently had installations at the historic Villa Angarano in Veneto, Italy, and at Desert Daze Music Festival in Joshua Tree, California.
Gainer, a natural phenomena enthusiast from Minneapolis, has had solo museum exhibitions at The New Temporary Contemporary at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia and the Museum of Contemporary Art at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
Los Angeles-based artist Horowitz combines traditional drawing, commercial photography and new media to dissect the idiosyncrasies of American pop culture. Horowitz has had solo international and national exhibitions, and his work has been featured on many televised news stations.
A renowned performance artist living in New York, Kasper toys with a range of emotions, recently having had solo shows in New York City, Portland, Oregon and the AND Collection, Bolzano, Italy.
