Five art videos from 2013

This has been an astounding year for the visual arts in Western New York. From the arrival of Janne Sirén as the 11th director of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the opening of the Burchfield Penney Art Center's ambitious exhibition "The Front Yard" (running "now through forever") to smaller-scale shows at Hallwalls, CEPA Gallery and elsewhere, the activity has been breathless and often stunning.

I trained my lens on a few particularly fascinating shows and artists this year. Here's a look at five of my favorite art videos from the past year:

"The Front Yard," Burchfield Penney Art Center

"Shasti O'Leary Soudant: Let There be Light," Burchfield Penney Art Center

"Patrick Robideau: Hallway," Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center

"Underlife" by Jason Middlebrook, Albright-Knox Art Gallery
