We are delighted to announce the next installment in our Emerging Trends seminar series which this season will focus on Moving Image.
The seminar will be led by Steven Bode is Director of Film and Video Umbrella, a London-based agency who are Britain’s main commissioners of artists’ film and video work. During his time in that role (which spans from 1993 to the present), he has initiated well over a hundred different projects, including major new works from internationally-acclaimed artists such as Isaac Julien, Gillian Wearing, Jane & Louise Wilson, Mark Leckey, Johan Grimonprez, Tacita Dean, Simon Martin and Luke Fowler. Alongside this commissioning activity, he has also curated a number of other large-scale group exhibitions such as Airport (1997, for Photographers’ Gallery, London; with Jeremy Millar), The Other Side of Zero (2000, for Video Positive, Liverpool), and There is No Road (2008, for LABoral, Gijón, Spain) as well as film and video programmes such as New Video from Great Britain (1997, for MoMA, New York).
He has written extensively about video, film and contemporary art for several publications, and has contributed essays to many artists’ monographs, including substantial texts on Dryden Goodwin (for the book, Cast, 2009) and Zineb Sedira (for Beneath the Surface, 2011) as well as catalogue essays for numerous Film and Video Umbrella publications.
The seminar will give an overview of current practices in moving image, paying particular attention to key themes and important developments in the medium with a focus on new artists to look out for.
