Project 35 Screening

Project 35 Screening

Converge Curators Forum, Art Chicago
The Merchandise Mart
NEXT Talk Shop, 7th Floor
Chicago, IL
April 30, 2010

ICI will present special screenings of Project 35 in the NEXT Talk Shop during the Chicago Art Fair from April 30-May 3, 2010.

Project 35 is an evolving exhibition of video works selected by 35 international curators and designed in a flexible presentation format, reflecting the diversity and unique nature of the many national and international art spaces ICI partners with.  For Project 35, each curator has been invited to select one artist’s video that they think vital for contemporary art audiences across the globe. The result heralds the new decade, and showcases a new exhibition concept for ICI, with an eclectic compilation of works that reveal the global reach that video has achieved as a contemporary art medium today. It is most fitting that this project begins with Guy Ben-Ner’s Berkeley’s Island (1999), which refers to George Berkeley’s famous dictum “to be is to be perceived”.  It is the curators’ and ICI’s hope that these videos are “perceived” by diverse communities within the exhibitions spaces that Project 35 will travel to, inspiring debate and functioning as an international catalyst for dialogue and exchange.
