The Brick + Mortar International Video Art Festival presents cutting edge video art works from around the world in Greenfield, MA. The downtown is transformed into a temporary arts district with a selection of contemporary video art exhibitions displayed in a variety of historic buildings. The festival provides a unique and exciting venue for the public to encounter contemporary art in wonderful architectural spaces. Greenfield Community College, Fostering Art and Culture, and the University Gallery, Fine Arts Center, University of Massachusetts partner, with the support of the Greenfield Business Association, Greenfield building-owners, local businesses and the Mayor’s Office, to make the festival an unforgettable event.

On the occasion of the 2nd annual Brick + Mortar International Video Art Festival, works by renowned international and local artists are integrated with a selection from Independent Curators International's Project 35, a new program of single-channel videos selected by 35 international curators who have each chosen one work by an artist that they think is important for audiences around the world to experience today. By expanding the network reflected by Project 35, these additions not only demonstrate video as a far-reaching medium, but as something also found in one's own backyard.
