  • Film in the Present Tense

    By on

    In spite of claims of its obsolescence, analog film is still alive. It continues to exist as an inimitable artistic medium, put to use in myriad forms around the world. Nonetheless, in the context of our ever-expanding digital landscape, analog film faces new challenges that have forced it into a process of deep transformation. What steps do we need to take to guarantee that analog film will remain as a living-breathing medium? What are the alternatives to the idea of film as an obsolete, historical object?

  • Edges: an Animation Seminar

    By on

    This seminar – part of the Edge of Frame Weekend – will address the questions of where experimental animation practice sits – at the ‘edges’ – in relation to independent animation, visual arts, histories, institutions. The seminar will do this not through the usual presentation of papers, but by asking artists, curators and academics to offer propositions and provocations, citing up to three works that illustrate their case.

    Frieze Video and LUX present Soft Floor, Hard Film: 50 Years of the London Film-Makers’ Co-op.

    Formed on October 13th 1968, the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC) grew out of a series of screenings in the basement of counter-culture book store, Better Books, on Charing Cross road to become a pioneering organisation incorporating a film workshop, cinema space and distribution office. Radical in its early ideals, the Co-op played a crucial role in establishing moving image as an art form in the UK and internationally.

  • VICO, videoclub of expanded operation

    By on

    VICO is a dynamic device, a portable mini-archive of video that has been activated through different tasks and in different environments. As it was launched, it was articulated over a nomadic chassis that traveled to different places for its exhibition and operation. It then became an interpersonal hub, linking institutions and individuals, with the aim of researching current artistic audiovisual practices, the conformation of local identities, media-based political expressions and other sociocultural configurations of the mediasphere. Its objective has been to study and affect in different forms the cultural inertias of a collective visual memory in Mexico.

  • Bruce Conner: It’s All True

    By on

    Bruce Conner: It’s All True is the first monographic museum exhibition in New York of the artist Bruce Conner, the first large survey of his work in 16 years, and the first comprehensive retrospective. The exhibition brings together over 250 objects in mediums including film and video, painting, assemblage, drawing, prints, photography, photograms, and performance.

    Bruce Conner: It’s All True presents a lifetime of work by Conner (1933–2008), one of the foremost American artists of the 20th century, whose transformative work defies straightforward categorization. An early practitioner of found-object assemblage and a pioneer of found-footage film, Conner was a singular member of both the underground film community and the flourishing San Francisco art world, achieving international standing early in his career. His work across a broad range of mediums touches pointedly on various themes of postwar American society, from the excesses of a burgeoning consumer culture to the dread of nuclear apocalypse. Conner’s diverse practice also anticipated the fluidity between mediums that is a hallmark of 21st-century art making. In addition to moving images and assemblages, he produced paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, photographs, installations, and conceptual interventions.

  • Indefinite Visions

    By on

    This two-day event brings together academics, film-makers and artists for presentations, conversations, and screenings to explore the indefinite and the illegible in experimental film, artists’ film and video, and commercial cinema.

    Light, motion, definition, compression: the conditions of recording, storing and screening moving image are subject to constant variations that pull them away from perfect visibility. Film-makers and artists often seek out and work with the resulting visual uncertainty, from the warping of space to the melding of senses; speed to slowness; darkness to glare; and blur to glitch. Indefinite Visions explores the possibility that an important function of moving image is not to show but to obscure, and that – like the photographer in Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up – the closer and deeper we look at an image, the less clear it becomes.
