Join Holland and Sundance Books for the 8th installment of our salon-style discussion series, Sunland. For this installment, we leave the cozy confines of the book store just this once to head next door to the Nevada Museum of Art to explore the Music Video: Statement-making videos, 1980’s to now. We will look at how the medium has evolved from the very first video that appeared on MTV in 1981 to the visual albums of Frank Ocean and Beyonce that came out last year. We will talk about how videos have been used to make a statement – political, social, personal – and how the unique mixture of music, art, and celebrity was able to carry these messages to the masses. From hunger, AIDs, LGBTQ and women’s rights, gun violence, racism, corporate greed, youth homelessness and more – we’ll get into the nitty gritty of the music video as statement art with some special guests to lead the discussion as well as some time to view clips from videos that changed and impacted our culture.
