An exhibition of moving image works by twelve renowned international artists.
Valletta Contemporary, Malta. April 28th-June 25th, 2022.
Curated by Chris Meigh-Andrews.
This exhibition is centred on the theme of landscape, presenting work by artists who have pioneered the electronic moving image as an art form. The intention is to present a diverse range of attitudes and approaches to the genre, featuring works that explore the potential of the moving image to represent subjective, emotional or imagined exterior spaces.
The exhibited art works incorporate or depict the artist’s personal, intellectual or cultural perspective through images of the natural world- often, but not always in juxtaposition to man-made artefacts or situations.
The eleven participating artists are:
Norbert Attard (Malta),Vince Briffa (Malta), Robert Cahen (France), Peter Campus (USA),Terry Flaxton (UK),Gary Hill (USA), Madelon Hooykaas (NL), Beryl Korot (USA), Chris Meigh-Andrews (UK), Michael Snow (Canada), Yeoul Son, (Korea) and Steina Vasulka (Iceland/USA).
I am honoured to have been invited to chair the jury for the 2021 Istanbul International Experimental Film Festival.
I will be making two presentations about my interest and work with 360 Panoramic images at the University of Malta in Valletta. The first will be for MA Students (Oct 19) and the second (Oct 20th) for research staff.
I have recently conducted an interview with pioneering artist Beryl Korot about the relationship between her video work and music, in particular her collaborative projects with her husband, composer Steve Reich on The Cave (1993) and Three Tales (2002).
