NURTUREart is pleased to present Videorover: Season 6 in partnership with RAPID PULSE, an International Performance Art Festival based in Chicago.
The sixth season of Videorover will showcase performance-inspired works made for the camera and to be presented on screen. The works in this exhibition are created using performance as a departure point and medium, privileging the body as the vehicle for production but also looking to the camera as a collaborator. In these works, performance acts allow the camera to complete them, mediating the gap between performer and audience.
Expanding the boundaries of what is or can be performance art is one of the many focuses of RAPID PULSE, as well as questioning ideas on presence, live-ness and mediation. Curated by Giana Gambino and Rachel Steinberg, Videorover: Season 6 will feature works by artists: Bridget Batch, Heather Delaney, Kerry Downey, Michael H Hall, Constantin Hartenstein, Gabriel Hosovsky, Lindsay Packer, Daniel Seiple, Alina Tenser, Jacob Tonski, and Roland Wegerer.
NURTUREart’s video program, Videorover aims at becoming an ever-expanding forum for new and emerging video artists. The works included in this season will be shown in a screening event both at NURTUREart Gallery on May 23 and at DEFRIBILLATOR Gallery in Chicago on June 5 as part of RAPID PULSE’s ten day long international performance art festival.
