The Southern Methodist University Meadows School of the Arts kicks off their Video Days exhibition with a reception in the Pollock Gallery Friday from 5-8 p.m. The Video Days exhibition runs from Nov. 1 through Dec. 13, featuring film and video addressing issues such as social stereotypes, dogma, human conditioning, risk, chance, and what it means to live the “American Dream”. The centerpiece of the exhibit is the 24-minute film “Video Days”, the directorial debut of American filmmaker Spike Jonze (which is considered one of the most influential skateboard videos of all time.) Click here to see the full list of additional films that will be shown. The Pollock Gallery is located at 3140 Dyer.
