REWIND - British Artists' Video in the 1970s and 1980s
24 November 2012 - 1 December 2012
This exhibition celebrates the publication of REWIND - British Artists' Video in the 1970s and 1980s, a new book celebrating the first two decades of artistsí works in video. We will present key works from the REWIND Artistsí Video Collection in a short-run exhibition that will allow visitors to view these works and to browse this important new book. The exhibition features work by Stephen Partridge, David Hall, David Larcher, Kevin Atherton, David Critchley, Elaine Shemilt and Tina Keane.
REWIND is a research project at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, led by Prof. Stephen Partridge and funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council. The project investigates and conserves works from the first two decades of artistsí video. Further access to the REWIND Artistsí Video Collection is available by appointment at the Visual Research Centre which is located on the lower floors of DCA or on-line here. The book, published by John Libbey, will also be available to purchase in DCA Shop.
This exhibition has been programmed alongside Artists' Books in Gallery 1, which is also part of Book Week Scotland.
