> DESCRIPTION

An exhibition of contemporary videos, produced and circulated by ICI (Independent Curators International), New York.  In recognition of ICI’s 35th anniversary, 35 curators from around the world were invited to select one artist’s video that they think is vital for contemporary art audiences. The result is an eclectic compilation of works that reveal video’s potential to inspire international dialogue and its global reach as a contemporary art medium.

Subjects range from uprisings and protests in South Africa, propaganda news broadcasts in China, and emerging youth culture in Ho Chi Minh City.  The works also demonstrate diverse approaches to the medium, incorporating various animation techniques and borrowing from the language of cinema, performance, and even YouTube to produce work that weaves between documentary and fiction.

Project 35 is produced and circulated by ICI (Independent Curators International), New York. The exhibition and tour are made possible, in part, by grants from the Cowles Charitable Trust, Foundation for Contemporary Art, Foundation To-Life, Inc., the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, and The Toby Fund; the ICI Board of Trustees; and ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson. Project 35 also benefitted from donations made to ICI’s Access Fund, created to widen the reach of ICI programs – Burt Aaron, Bobbie Brown and Steven Plofker, Jim Cohan, Phillip Drill, Leslie Fritz, Marilyn and Stephen Greene, Agnes Gund, Ken Kuchin, Gerrit and Sydie Lansing, Jo Carole Lauder, Janelle Reiring, Patterson Sims, Bill and Ruth True, August Uribe, Frank and Margo Walter, Helene Winer, and Virginia and Bagley Wright.
