About Live Cinema
is a series of programs that explores the vast production of video and filmwork by a diverse group of local, national, and international artists. In the last decades an ever-increasing number of contemporary artists have appropriated these mediums as an artistic outlet, in a dialogue with the early video and Super 8 practices of the sixties and the tradition of experimental filmmaking. Each program of the Live Cinema
series focuses on a specific aspect of this work, in order to both map and analyze this important facet of contemporary art production. Certain Live Cinema
programs are accompanied by a brochure in which writers and curators discuss the works exhibited, and also by public lectures given by the participating artists.
