Leuzzi, L. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation

Description

This paper will focused on the AHRC
funded research project EWVA
European Women’s Video Art in the
70s and 80s (2015-2017, DJCAD,
University of Dundee) led by Prof.
Elaine Shemilt. Co-Investigator is Prof.
Stephen Patridge; Researcher, Leuzzi
and Archivist, Adam Lockhart. EWVA
aims to retrace and reassess the
germinal early contribution of
European women artists to video as
an artform. Despite the fact that
several women artists had been
experimenting with the medium in the
70s and 80s, their fundamental
experimentation is still marginalised
and has partially fallen into oblivion.
EWVA aims to strength their profiles
and identities within the art historical
canon and support their recognition.
