Opening Saturday, September 24th, from 11:30AM - 12:30PM
Daria de Beauvais, 2016 EXPO VIDEO Curator | Palais de Tokyo and Stephanie Cristello, Director of Programming | EXPO CHICAGO and Editor-in-Chief of THE SEEN
Curated in two distinct sections, the 2016 EXPO VIDEO program traces darker thematics in contemporary film, video, and new media work. Located on the west end of Festival Hall, the pieces included in The Yellow Wallpaper and Daedalus are imbued with mystery, archetypal images of the underworld, and psychological references to the unknown. This panel will trace the more haunted potentials of film from the last two decades, showing the evolution of video art and the experimentation of many techniques—from scratched film to 16mm to digital technologies. This interview will examine de Beauvais’ motivations for the concurrent programs, discuss the artists’ works on view, and how EXPO VIDEO relates to her current curatorial practice in recent exhibitions. EXPO VIDEO will be on view at the west end of Festival Halls A & B.
