Project 35 is an eclectic compilation of works exploring video as a contemporary art medium. Selected by an international group of 35 curators, the videos in this yearlong series present the work of 35 contemporary video artists from around the world and demonstrate how important and far-reaching video is as a medium for contemporary artists.
The series will be presented in four installments, changing every two months over the course of nine months, with eight to nine video art projects shown at a time. Among the artists included are Dan Halter (South Africa), Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz (U.S.), Zhou Xiachu (China), Kota Ezawa (Germany/U.S.), Ranbir Kaleka (India), Tracey Moffatt (Australia), Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain (Brazil), and Vartan Avakian (Lebanon). Individual works range in length from two to 26 minutes.
The international perspective of this project is reflected in the wide-ranging topics addressed by the videos. Protests in South Africa, youth culture in Ho Chi Minh City, news broadcasts in China, and street crime in Bogotá are among the subjects explored. The series also reveals the diversity of approaches used by video artists, including documentary, YouTube, claymation, and digital animation. A recurring theme is the power of images and the role of the media in shaping collective experience. [Some material in this exhibition may be unsuitable for children. Parental discretion is advised.]
