VIDEO_DUMBO - KICKSTARTER
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
video_dumbo is the annual festival of international contemporary video art. This year video_dumbo will be held on September 23-25th as part of the 2011 Dumbo Arts Festival.
We are proud to present 67 artists from 27 different countries, a number of NY/East Coast and world premieres, including works from places as remote as Chittagong, Bangladesh and Tripoli, Lebanon.
For the past seven years, video_dumbo has been an important exhibition platform for emerging filmmaker and media artists. In our continuing mission to exhibit rarely seen video art, we present a growing selection of international, thought-provoking works to our audience.
Last year, video_dumbo was described as the most outstanding and best curated event of the Dumbo Arts Festival 2010 by the 18-person festival jury of NYC-based arts professionals.
Highlights this year include eight installations under the exhibition title QUASI CINEMA, featuring works that re-appropriate film technology as well as cinematic metaphors. Exhibition artists include Leslie Thornton, Aram Bartholl, Ernesto Klar, Ali Miharbi, Naho Taruishi, Andy Graydon and Ken Jacobs. Plus, there will be an introduction by the Boston-based media art DVD magazine "Aspect," as well as a special DVD release of the video duo HALFLIFERS.

We hope to hear back from you and looking forward to welcoming you at our festival!
