Forum Lounge: FAST-FORWARD: A Screening of Contemporary American Video Art
Curated by Annie Wharton, FAST-FORWARD is a compilation of short length videos by artists working in the medium. Artists were selected for their diversity of form and strength of execution, and the videos encompass a wide range of subject matter ranging from corporeal, action-based performances, to stop-motion graphics, and from computer-generated iconography, to humorous slices of life. All of the videos are recent, and run the gamut for video works being made today. FAST-FORWARD artists include: Susan Lee Chun, Jen DeNike, Spencer Douglass and Gustavo Hererra, Adriana Farmiga, Dan Finsel, Jesse Reding Fleming, Christy Gast, Alexa Gerrity, aaron GM, Micol Hebron, Marc Horowitz, Jiae Hwang, David Jones, Julie Lequin, Justin H. Long, Shana Moulton, Davida Nemeroff, Ali Prosch, and Mark Verabioff. In addition to the FAST-FORWARD screening of artist videos, CAF will show works on monitors and projections by Jen DeNike, Jesse Reding Fleming, Alexa Gerrity, Davida Nemeroff, and Ali Prosch.
