Vision All Together is an exhibition featuring the work of nine artists who utilize the moving image form to create works involving elements of performance. Curated specifically for the Moving Image Symposium at the Durango Arts Center, the show features video works that examine topics such as regionalism, the self, chance, bloodlines, and the video system.  These works represent a broad range of approaches including carefully constructed imagery, playful provocations, archival footage juxtaposed with digital animation and the use of the camera and monitor as an additional component to the performances depicted.  The exhibition hinges upon notions of identity relating to oneself in the moving image form.  In turn, the exhibit asks who is “I” and when is the artist’s performance complete.

ABOUT THE CURATOR

Adam Forrester (b. 1980) received his MFA from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia.  His work has been screened and exhibited nationally and internationally as well as featured by NPR, The Bitter Southerner, and VICE Magazine.  His book, Supermoon, was featured in GUP Magazine’s Favourite Photobooks of 2013 (Jim Reed).  Adam makes work about bizarre myths, abiding folktales, and mumbled truths. From time to time, he reminisces about the moment when jelly shoes and reebok pumps were popular.  He is currently, most likely, somewhere between Atlanta and New Orleans.

Interested in creating performance art videos? Learn fundamental techniques and aesthetic possibilities for creating moving image performance art.

While the possibilities for performance cinema abound, the key to creating performance art video is concept development and cinematic technique. This workshop will provide an overview of video production for performance art. Students will develop an idea, create a production plan, operate a DSLR camera and edit video in Final Cut Pro X. Additional topics will include green screen and chroma keying techniques. No previous knowledge of digital cinema is necessary.
