New Video Art Fair Launches for London's Frieze Week
On the strength of the successful launch in March 2011, in New York, Moving Image have announced the Moving Image: An Art Fair of Contemporary Video Art, in London, to run concurrently with the Frieze Art Fair, in October 2011.
Moving Image has been conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving-image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms. The newly formed Moving Image Curatorial Advisory Committee for London is inviting a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions to present single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations. Curatorial Advisory Committee for Moving Image London:
The fair will be the same size as in New York, with around 30 galleries, and will follow the same format, featuring a mixture of single-channel works and larger installations, although there will be more emphasis on large-scale pieces. “With a total of 15 different rooms, the possibilities for more experiential installations are greater,” said Winkleman. The price of exhibiting remains the same: a single-channel monitor costs $2,500 and an installation $5,000.
