It’s time: the 2009 Short Film & Video Festival

One of my favorite things to do at this time of year, aside from spend time with family and make (and eat!) lots of my grandma’s Christmas cookies, is watch films. I love film; indie flicks, foreign stories and good old blow-everything-up-Hollywood-style movies.  I especially love video art, so I was really excited to join ASU Art Museum earlier this year where video art is truly appreciated and promoted as an important creative medium. 

Ok, you don’t care about me or my grandma’s cookies. So here’s what you need to know to submit your free entry into the 13th Annual Short Film & Video Festival at ASU Art Museum:

1. There is no fee to enter and anyone can do it. Entries are accepted throughout the year from filmmakers worldwide. 

2.  Entries must be not longer than 10 minutes.

3.  Send your entries to the Museum directly and please include your name and contact information.

See our Web site for all of the details, which are kept pretty simple, really.

The deadline for entry this year is February 6, 2009. The selected entries will be screened on the Plaza at the Nelson Fine Arts Center on April 18 at 8pm.

Need even more video art? We’ve got you covered: our very own John Spiak is bringing the show he curated for Aqua Art Miami to town later next year. The full exhibition, titled I’m Keeping an Eye on You, will be at ASU Art Museum in August, 2009.

Aqua Art Miami!

I recently returned from Miami and the amazing art fair week! Through the extreme generosity of Aqua Art Miami, the ASU Art Museum presented I’m Keeping an Eye on You, a curated Video Project Space at Aqua Wynwood, as part of the ASU Art Museum Moving Targets Initiative.

Thanks to Aqua’s Jaq Chartier, Dirk Park, Joshua Weinberg and Bhavin Patel for their incredible energy and support. Thanks as well to the Scenic Group’s Craig Hensala, Simon Watson and Molly Myer for all their promotional efforts and networking support.

A thank you must also go to Jenea Sanchez for assistance in creating program material for the presentation in Miami. Thank you as well to the ASU Art Museum Advisory Board, specifically Eddie and Ellyce Shea, for hosting a preview event of the project at their home in Phoenix.

I must thank Heather Lineberry, Interm Director at the ASU Art Museum for her support in the Museum’s participation.

Lastly, this project would not be possible with out the over 425 artists who submitted work for review and made recommendations of artists for consideration, most specifically the ten artists selected for the final project; Mounira Al Solh, Rachel Garfield, Charlotte Ginsborg, Pia Greschner, Myung-Soo Kim, Yaron Lapid, Jeff Luckey, Johnna MacArthur, Michael Mohan and Corinna Schnitt. The process has been extremely rewarding and through it I have discovered numerous artists that I look forward to working with and presenting their work in future exhibitions.

I’m Keeping an Eye on You travels to the ASU Art Museum, premiering as a full scale exhibition in fall of 2009, so make your plans now to pay us a visit.

Here are some images that will give you a feel of the overall presentation at Aqua Wynwood.

Hope you enjoy!

Video Project Space @ Aqua Art Miami

As I return from paternity leave for the birth of my son I thought I would send an update on some recent activities.  I was contacted in April and invited by one of the directors of Aqua Art Miami, one of the major art fairs that take place in Miami the first weekend of December (this year Dec. 2-7), to curate a video project space for their Wynwood location.  Of course I was honored and accepted immediately.

 

Over the past couple of months I used my network of video artists to connect with new video artists, culminating in my contacting over 425 individual artists and inviting them to submit work for review.  The results were amazing!  I received over 1,200 works to review and spent much time during my leave reviewing the work, sneaking viewing times as the boy napped and in late evenings.

 

Through the process I have discovered so many artists for whom I had previously been unaware, selecting ten artists whose work will be included in the project to be titled I’m Keeping an Eye on You.  I was also fortunate to find so many artists for consideration of future group and solo exhibitions, so I will be contacting many of them and keeping you up to date.

 

The exhibition I’m Keeping an Eye on You will include the works of international artists Mounira Al Solh, Rachel Garfield, Charlotte Ginsborg, Pia Greschner, Myung-Soo Kim, Yaron Lapid, Jeff Luckey, Johnna MacArthur, Michael Mohan, and Corinna Schnitt.  It will be presented as a single-channel projected loop in Miami before expanding into a full exhibition that is scheduled to open at the ASU Art Museum in early August of 2009.

 

More complete details will be placed on the ASU Art Museum website in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, here is a link to the Aqua Art Miami website with details on the fair: http://aquaartmiami.com
