Video art today plays a key role in contemporary art practice. However, it differs from other art mediums specifically by its technicality, its ephemeral and perhaps at times intangible nature, as well as its mutability and adaptability in terms of the aesthetic processes within the medium. This exhibition presents a diverse group of artists representing multi-generational and cultural backgrounds, nationalities and personal histories, while demonstrating the artists’ impressive command of video and new media technologies.
About Frame and Frequency: Frame & Frequency 4 is an ongoing International Video Art Exchange program that will screen concurrently in Rockville, Maryland at VisArts and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bogota, Colombia (South America). It will highlight the work of twelve international artists whose new media, experimental film and video works explore contemporary visual culture, and present an intimate panorama of the variety and breadth of video art in artistic practice today - including various themes such as appropriation, digital erasure and camouflage, identity politics, climate change, as well formal investigations of video as a medium.
