Join us for two screenings of innovative sound and video art, juried by Kelly Gordon, associate curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. The fifth installment of this series will showcase the talents of international, local and student new media artists.
Participating artists include:
Stephen Ausherman, Stephanie Barber, Bret Battey, Patrick Bergeron, Manuella Blackburn, Aaron Bowles, Lin Culbertson, Robert Ladislas Derr, Nhieu Do, Brian Evans, Harvey Goldman, Lee Henderson, Janne Holtermann, Daniel Iglesia, Ben McCormick, Karl J. Mendonca, Jonathan Monaghan, Neil Ira Needleman, Julia Oldham, Kala Pierson, Maria Pithara, Gerard Freixes Ribera, Stefan Riebel, Alberto Roblest, Jack Dingo Ryan, Eldad Tsabary and Robert Voisey, and Jessica Westbrook.
Kelly Gordon, associate curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden will present a Q & A session after the Wednesday screening. Since 2006, the Experimental Media Series has showcased the talents of artists working in sound and video art. Choosing to jury this year’s program without an overlying theme, Gordon says, “This selection is robustly diverse in style, approach, use of medium, age of artists, geographic area represented, and experience level. They are linked only by my definition of quality.” The most compelling entries, as selected by the juror and based on overall quality and innovation, were awarded the Kraft Prize for New Media and the WPA Experimental Art Prize, two cash prizes of $750 each, on Oct. 1 at The Phillips Collection.
