On May 10, VAEFF had our Frieze Week screening, VAEFF: Special Selections at the cutlog NY Art Fair. We are so happy to have been able to show a selection of the videos from past festivals as part of a cutting-edge, international, curator-driven art fair.
VAEFF: Special Selections combined widely interdisciplinary videos from a range of genres, and through their combination explored the themes of tsunami, sexuality, and identity from multiple, illuminating angles.
The screening was further enhanced by a dynamic Q&A with artists Daphna Mero, Sepideh Salehi, and Bil Thompson, and led by panel moderator Mark Alpert. We got to have a peek into the artists’ methods, as well as a discussion of their upcoming works.
The VAEFF team wants to thank our artists and the staff of cutlog NY (especially Chris and the A.V. team). We are always pleased to provide opportunities to experience and discuss video art and experimental film to our community of artists.
*Reminder: VAEFF is accepting submissions to our October 2014 festival until June 1! Submit here.*
