From the structural experiments of early seventies video artists like Woody and Steina Vasulka, to the cinema-scale projection of Bill Viola, to the proliferation of contemporary video-mapping in outdoor locations; video art has fractured and proliferated over many media surfaces.
Join innovative post-video artists Xanthe Dobbe and Aaron Christopher Rees from the ‘Another Space’ exhibition to discuss the development of their new screen and projection-based works and the futures of the moving image.
This session will also include a showing at Testing Grounds, 7:30pm (5mins walk from ACMI X) featuring projects presented as part of the ‘Another Space’ exhibition.
about the artists
Xanthe Dobbie is a Melbourne-based new media artist and curator. Her practice aims to capture the experience of post-internet contemporaneity as reflected through feminism, art history, iconography and queer culture.
Aaron Christopher Rees is a multidisciplinary artist who recycles images to consider how technology and the act of picture-making mediates our experience of the world. Rees’s work is concerned with affect, phenomenology and abstraction, with recent work taking form as site-specific installations where screens interpolate space.
