Stephen Partridge - Recipient, 21 May 2012 → 22 Jul 2012
Video Art in Italy 1968–1994
Visiting: Dipartimento Comunicazione e Spettacolo, Roma Tre, Universita Degli Studi, Italy
My current AHRC research project REWINDItalia investigates early Italian video art activity. Italy was a vibrant centre of video art production and exhibition and was remarkable because of the international reach of the work produced. It is timely that its history and circumstances that characterised its rise and, ultimately, its fall into international critical oblivion are brought to light. This award allowed me to spend additional time in Italy at relevant centres and archives, and develop curatorial elements outside the scope of the original project.
