Follow Up on Poets with a Video Camera: Videopoetry 1980–2020
Sadly Poets with a Video Camera exhibition curated by Tom Konyves at Surrey Art Gallery, Vancouver ended on December 11th. There have been a number of very good overviews of this leading exhibition, and I have posted them at this link on Liberated Words alongside further photos from the event.
I was very proud to have my videopoem Some Everybodies in the exhibition, and be key speaker at the related symposium on November 5th, amongst so many talented artists. Many many thanks to Tom and Jordan Strom (SAG curator of exhibitions). Life will feel a little less special after this!
The Women’s Canvas – A Festival of Films is upon us (16th–19th December) from Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. Run by women for women who aim to create interesting and boundary-pushing content’. Good luck with the festival. I was fortunate enough to have Villanelle for Elizabeth not Ophelia included and look forward to the screenings in the coming days.
