CALL FOR VIDEO
Jasmine Moorhead and Rebekah Rutkoff, in collaboration with The Culture Project, are pleased to announce the initiation of Jaraf: Video @ 45 Below, a monthly program of video art. The series will begin in September and be held in the newly renovated space below the 45 Bleecker Theater at the corner of Bleecker and Lafayette Streets in downtown Manhattan.
Jaraf will emphasize the specific potential of the medium of video, presenting the work of artists who are exploring the boundaries and possibilities of video for vital image-making. We are less concerned with experience and expertise than with bringing challenging works, by both more and less established artists, to light.
We hope this space will undo the polarization between the kinds of video works that are currently shown in gallery and festival settings and provide a continuous curatorial presence for new, rigorous works.
Please send samples of your work (VHS) for possible inclusion in this series. Include your name, telephone number, address, e-mail, as well as the name and duration of the piece(s).
Include a SASE if you would like your tape returned.
We look forward to seeing your work.
