Eder Santos Cinema
The Wexner Center's exhibition space for video, The Box features varied works shown in an intimate setting. The Box is located just across from the Wexner Center Store. Screenings run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Via Brasil presentations began unfolding across all the Wex's program areas in 2012, and will culminate in through 2014 with a major exhibition and documentary film series, a translation of film criticism, and complementary performing arts events. With Via Brasil, the Wexner Center strives to introduce our community to the unique and diverse cultural landscape that contributes to the increasing prominence of Brazil on the global arts scene.
A pioneer of Brazilian video art, Eder Santos has pushed the medium’s limits since the early 1980s, creating elaborate installations and single-channel works grounded in Brazil’s rich and diverse cultural history. In Cinema, Santos edits images from the landscape of his home state, Minas Gerais, to create a poetic journey through time and space. With a score by sound artist Stephen Vitiello, a frequent collaborator with Santos. (13 mins., HD video)
