    Description

    This one-day symposium and screening event, followed by the launch of the newly installed? REWIND Videotheque ?at the British Artists’ Film and Video Study Collection, is presented as part of Central Saint Martins’s Strangelove Moving Image Festival. The 1970s and 1980s is a period sometimes characterised as marking a transition from modernist medium specificity to more diverse pluralistic forms of engagement in artists’ film and video in the UK. This symposium and screening event will trace practice and exhibition through these decades. It will range through the diverse practices of the 1970s, and the politicized early 1980s, with a focus on The New Pluralism (Tate 1986), which sought to survey work from first five years of that decade. It will further consider how notions of pluralism may be applied to artists’ moving image practice and exhibition in the 21st Century, in its many contemporary forms and contexts.?? The day will include presentations by Stephen Partridge (University of Dundee), Patti Gaal-Holmes, and Sean Cubitt (Goldsmiths College), who along with CSM students from MRes Art: Moving Image have also curated special screening programmes of rarely seen works of British Video Art and Experimental Film from the 1970s and 1980s.
