Video Art Conference, Sydney

CONFERENCE: DISAPPEARING VIDEO

Thursday 23 October, 6.30 – 8.00pm and Friday 24 October, 10.00am – 5.00pm

This conference provides a narrative to the development of Australian artists working with video.

Join significant art practitioners, theorists and critics to examine histories and speculate what the future holds for video art. Disappearing Video includes an evening screening of key video works and a critical conference day program.

Media based works have recently achieved an unprecedented level of visibility in contemporary art. Yet what may be learned from the different ways artists have worked with the video medium since the 1960s? And how should video art be collected, distributed and circulated in the public and private arenas?

Video practices have shifted with the ascendancy of participatory media and culture. With the approaches of “Web 2.0”, open source and Creative Commons, and various platforms including YouTube, Wikipedia and Joost, are there new opportunities for artists and audiences to critically engage with the complex ideas, voices and histories? Or are these new networked, distributed modes a threat to the market value of unique or Limited Edition videos? Has video joined the mainstream, or will the medium cling to outmoded methods of production and distribution in an effort to maintain critical purity?

Disappearing Video draws a range of different perspectives to tackle these questions in a series of informative and provocative presentations.
