DESCRIPTION

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 ValverdeVideorover, 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.

On June 20, the second selection will open, featuring artists Beatriz Meseguer, Alona Rodeh, and Raul Valverde, whose works are centered on conditions of light and absence as a common ground. Architectural in nature, the focus of this group turns to the empty gallery space, where small interventions create chaos in the truancy of human interference. Here, the unnoticed subtleties of a gallery become the center of our attention. The resulting calm is enveloping, shifting our perspective to the architectural.

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.
