December 2013 - May 2014
An online space dedicated to the video still and curated by Karen Y. Chan.
Separate from the video itself, the still can be appreciated for its own strange, ambiguous, textural, graphic, haunting and/or ephemeral qualities. It can tell part of a story and leave much to the viewer's imagination. What is the artist's thought process in selecting a still? What's the significance of the details in this one frame (or moment)? We can ask these questions or just admire the video still simply for its mystery.
Video stills from 21 artists will be shown; the participating emerging and established artists from around the world were invited or selected through an open call to be a part of this project.
Artists: Zack Bent, Andrew Binkley, Yoon Cho, Steve Cossman, Bryant Davis, Max Gleason, Faith Holland, Jane V Hsu, Kera MacKenzie, A. Bill Miller, Jeroen Nelemans, Heidi C. Neubauer, Paul O'Donoghue, Renzo Ortega, Charmaine Ortiz, Laura Simpson, Hyla Skopitz, Simone Stoll, Ellen Wetmore, James Woodward, and Frank Zadlo
