Up All Night 

When: Fri., Sept. 1, 6-9 p.m. 2017
Price: free

If you caught artist and filmmaker George Jenne's unforgettable "Spooky Understands" in Southern Accent at the Nasher, then you already know what funny, ominous effects the UNC-Chapel Hill grad can achieve with video he staged and shot. In Up All Night, which he co-curated with Lump director Kelly McChesney, we'll find out what he can do with videos by others. Up All Night explores the dialogue between art videos and music videos by licensing a number of both and running them on monitors throughout the gallery. Jenne's artist statement situates the exhibit against the polyglot insanity that used to be found on public-access TV and the USA network's Night Flight, a media world with porous avant-garde and commercial boundaries. The art-video side of the show includes big names like Vito Acconci and distinguished locals like Harrison Haynes, while the music-video side finds the seam where promotion meets vision, in works by the likes of Michel Gondry (Cibo Matto's "Sugar Water") and Gerald V. Casale (Devo's "Whip It"). For the month of September in Lump, it's almost like MTV never happened. —Brian Howe
