International Limestone Coast Video Art Festival 2020
6 Nov - 13 Dec The Riddoch Arts & Cultural Centre
EXHIBITION EXTENDED UNTIL 13 DECEMBER
Organised by The Riddoch Arts & Cultural Centre, the biennial International Limestone Coast Video Art Festival celebrates the creation of Video Art and places special emphasis on innovative and ground-breaking artworks. This year’s theme is ‘Video Art during and after the pandemic‘.
Installations & video works will be displayed in all three of The Riddoch’s gallery spaces.
The programming of the International Limestone Coast Video Art Festival 2020 is conceptually divided between an Open Call selection and a curated selection. For the curated selection, Festival Curator Dr. Melentie Pandilovski invited selected artists to create new work that responded to the theme of ‘Video art during and after the pandemic‘ – specifically for this festival. For the Open Call, entrants submitted one original work produced in the period from January 2020 to August 2020 responding to the theme. From more than 1800 Open Call entries, 29 videos that explore isolation, fear, new cycles, repetition and boredom in different ways across the globe were selected.
