Artists’ Moving Image Research Network
Cate Elwes generously invited me to participate in a closed seminar at Chelsea College of Art & Design in June. Other participants included prominent scholars and artists involved in the UK-based Artists’ Moving Image Research Network. The subject of the seminar was Moving Image Art and Global Media Spectacle. Due to a head cold with a nasty cough, my participation was limited to private conversations during the frequent tea and coffee breaks. Nevertheless the day proved to be full of lively, engaging discussions and I can’t thank Cate enough for inviting me.
The Network is set to publish the inaugural issue of MIRAJ.
The Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ) is the first peer-reviewed publication devoted to artists’ film and video, and its contexts. It is published twice a year in print by Intellect Books in collaboration with the CCW Graduate School, University of the Arts London. MIRAJ offers a wide reaching international forum for debates surrounding all forms of artists’ moving image and media artworks.
MIRAJ is seeking “contributions from art historians and critics, film and media scholars, curators, and, not least, practitioners. We seek pieces that offer theories of the present moment but also writings that propose historical re-readings.”
I encourage everyone to take a look at their site and join the freshly-hatched discussion forums.
