International Video Exchange in Troms?

A network initiative between artist/curators, Art Video Exchange (AVE) organizes opportunities for video artists and promotes the production and circulation of international video programming.

Participating countries include: Philippines, Germany, Lebanon, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, USA and Poland. Small Projects have also invited the students of the Academy of Contemporary Art Troms? to present a 30-minute program.

The artist/curators will each present a 30-minute program of video work from their countries and discuss these programs to a public audience. In addition, a symposium will be arranged where the curators will meet to discuss the challenges facing the contemporary video artist/curator. Issues of format and screening praxis, and the wider definition of video art in today?s technological environment.

  1. This sounds like a fantastic program and opportunity to share what we are all doing with the international community of media visionaries. Please know that as the director and founder of experiments in cinema, I would be very interested in participating in this exciting program and exchange of ideas. There is nothing I enjoy more than traveling my programming to other countries and discussing the state of the (media)art. To date I have been invited to present my festival in Canada, south Korea, Russia, and Argentina. Th reeks nothing more important than sharing these un-dependent media voices with others.
    All the best,
