Since its creation in the ‘60s, video art has continuously pushed its own boundaries as a medium, displacing viewer expectations of video as shaped by conventional cinema. Today, traditional screen-based works are significantly fewer as cinematographers and short film makers increasingly blur the lines between video and genres such as architecture, music, sculpture, and digital art.
The Alliance Française’s FOCUS! delves into these disciplinary overlaps with two programs of screenings and discussions. Saturday’s screenings will be followed by DJ/VJ sets from local and French artists, Green Monkeys and SND+VSN.
