Videorover: Season 8 (Part 1)
NURTUREart is pleased to present Videorover: Season 8, curated by Rachel Steinberg and featuring works by artists Dave Greber, Victoria Keddie, Derek Larson, Brendan Lee, Beatriz Meseguer, Sofia Quirno, Alona Rodeh, Adam Douglas Thompson andRaul Valverde. Videorover, NURTUREart’s dedicated video program, aims at becoming an ever-expanding forum for emerging and underrepresented artists working in video.
This season’s video works explore the idea of video as installation, highlighting the immersive potential that time based media hold. Through audio and visual tools and using the body as a reference point, this exhibition aims to interrupt our exteroceptive senses. For three weeks in June, Videorover: Season 8 will take over NURTUREart’s main gallery space; opening in shifts for a series of three consecutive installations. Each installation will feature three of the selected artists, to allow for the works to expand in the space, while still in dialogue with the larger group of works.
The first selection, opening on June 13 includes works by Victoria Keddie, Brendan Lee, and Adam Douglas Thompson. Through dissection, reconfiguration and layering, their works harness the resonant fields of energy in the spaces they represent. This first selection tends to derail our intuitions, shifting between analog and digital tools, architectural models, or layered renderings. The transmission of physical and imagined/perceived space within these works is not what it originally seems, inviting a deeper look.
After the series of installations in the main gallery space, the videos will move to the Videorover Project Space, where they will be on display in a rotation of one video per day for the duration of the season.
