Grain Footage

Don’t let the seeming simplicity of desert landscapes fool you. They’re more than harsh sun and blowing dust. The artists featured in “Shifting Sands: Recent Videos from the Middle East” know this all too well. On view at Tempe’s ASU Art Museum, 51 East 10th Street, their videos delve into what the desert areas in Afghanistan and on the border of Israel and Palestine mean on personal and political levels.
