Project 35 is a year-long international video exhibition of historic and contemporary works selected by 35 curators from around the globe. Curators were invited to select one artists video that they think vital for contemporary art audiences across the globe. The result is the opportunity to view a diversity of approaches to making video, as well as the interests artists are addressing in their practice. The works are presented in 4 chapters, each containing 8 to 9 videos that will be presented in various formats and locations around Moores campus through May 2011.
The first chapter represents the global reach of the project with works that deal with wide-ranging, confrontational realties, with the uprisings and protests in post-colonial South Africa, the propaganda broadcasts in China's Socialist history, a young Latina woman's home in the Bronx, the urban roads of modern-day Ho Chi Minh City, and the crime-filled streets of Bogotá.
Artists in Chapter 1 include: Robert Cauble (selected by Raimundas Malasauskas), Guy Ben-Ner (selected by Mai Abu ElDahab), Kota Ezawa (selected by Constance Lewallen), Dan Halter (selected by Kathryn Smith), Tuan Andrew Nguyen & Phù Nam Thuc Ha (selected by Zoe Butt), Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz (selected by Franklin Sirmans), Edwin Sánchez (selected by José Roca), Yukihiro Taguchi (selected by Mami Kataoka), and Zhou Xiaohu (selected by Lu Jie).
Project 35 is produced and circulated by iCI (Independent Curators International), New York. The exhibition is on view at The Galleries at Moore
through July 31, 2010.
