Collecting Moving Images
the Nunnery, Bow, London
I participated in a Forum discussion curated by Cinzia Cremona, around the theme of Collecting Moving Images as part of a survey exhibition of recent work.
The Forum was chaired by Cinzia and included
3 pm Collecting: Myriam Blundell collector and curator, and Lucy Bayley from the Contemporary Art Society
4 pm Coffee and Pampero rum break
4.30 pm Circulating: Peter Lewis, Chris Meigh-Andrews and myself
I screened Screen Tests, and talked about working with public media archives and the possibilities offered by copyleft licenses.
We had an interesting discussion (on-line here) on collecting - storage, exhibition the museum and the archive; circulation - gallery or private exhibition, and the 'free' circulation of material via archive.org or copyleft distribution; economics - the differences in a consumer model, or fee based commissions; and more generally the dynamics of private collections, educational archives and databases; and the impact of changing technologies.
