Anthony McCall - Light describing a coneEsta conferencia de la Tate que se celebrará en Londres los próximos 17 a 19 de Abril, servirá para indagar en un campo del cine y videoarte que se encuentra en expansión, a través de las proyecciones multipantalla, preformances, realidad virtual, eventos mutlimedia, etc.... El evento forma parte de un proyecto parte del AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council) titulado Exploración narrativa en el Cine Expandido, iniciado por el Dr Jackie Hatfield. Dirigido por Duncan White y David Curtis, el proyecto (con base en la British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection en Central St Martins, College of Art & Design (University of the Arts London) en colaboración con Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee) busca eplorar las diferentes historas del cine expandido y su impacto sobre el problema de la narrativa, el tiempo y el espacio en la práctica de las artes y el cine experimentales.

Antes de la conferencia, durante el mes de Marzo, en la página web se publicarán una serie de artículos y transcripciones de entrevistas que han sido generados desde el proyecto durante los pasados 18 meses. Entre estos se incluyen entrevistas de Dunca White a Carolee Schneemann, William Raban, Guy Sherwin, Peter Weibel, Malcolm LeGrice y otros, así como una grabación en streamingdel anterior evento The Live Record en el BFI Southbank en Diciembre de 2008. Los enlaces se publicarán en studycollection.org.uk.

Durante la conferencia, se pondrá a disposición una videotecaque contendrá documentación de más de 70 obras de cine expandido por más de 30 artistas, grabadas en dos eventos recientes en Alemania, disponibles por cortesía de los artistas y de la Expanded Cinema Study Collection de Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund y Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart, con especial agradecimiento a Mark Webber. Las entradas para la conferencia se pueden adquirir online o a través de la taquilla de la Tate en el tfno. 0044 (0) 20 7887 8888
