Introductory Video Art Workshop
Dates: Jan 15th to 25th / Tuesdays & Fridays / 9:30 am to 1:30 pm
This workshop introduces the use of moving images in the visual arts, sharing my outlook from Latin America and how it relates to contemporary art globally.
It is primarily a practical workshop with both individual and group exercises, exploring concepts of collaboration, appropriation, sound and performance as elements of a creative process included in video art manifestations.
Group discussion and participation is key, looking into past and present work, the influence of technical advances on changes in artistic movements and installing proposals developed in class.
There will be a brief overview of technical aspects, but the workshop focuses on opening up creative possibilities with moving images, regardless of technical proficiency or equipment.
