A Polyphonic Essay On Memory

Alexandra Ross (Curator), Gayle Meikle (Curator), Laura Leuzzi (Curator)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Drawing from the REWIND Artists Video Archive and research project EWVA, a Polyphonic Essay on Memory is a performance, presentation, screening and discussion on the theme of memory generated through artworks selected from the REWIND Artists Video Archive and research project EWVA (European Women’s Video Art in the 70s and 80s). Each curator will unveil their selected artworks to one another and the audience simultaneously.

This format agitates expected conventions and the mediated response of presenting artworks to an audience. Introducing a live, spontaneous element of performance in which the curators will respond in the moment. As such, this event proffers an alternative entry to reading artworks and is recommended to those interested in the expanded field of the curatorial. Live essaying will draw from individually gathered archives of material and will unfold, surround and contextualise the presented video artworks.
