Report of 9th International Festival of Digital Arts & New Media Athens Video Art Festival
An ambitious, difficult project, with the title “Living Athens”, was completed successfully. 9th International Festival of Digital Arts and New Media, Athens Video Art Festival, has come to an end.
For three days (7th, 8th & 9th of June), in five spots of historic center of Athens, technology met art and the city transformed into a prototype mosaic of expression. A celebration of artistic expression through new capacities of technology starring more than 350 artists, who were chosen among 1.500 applies, from 58 countries.
Under the motto “Living Athens” and motivated by their love for art, more than 18.000 citizens visited Festival’s spots and browsed into focal, but also scorned, areas of the Historic Center. The purpose was the contribution to the aesthetic revitalization and the suburban improvement of the city.

Miami Filmmaker Opens The Screening Room To Promote Video As An Art Form
Video as an art form has come a long way. Although artists started seriously working with the medium at least a half century ago (some will pinpoint Nam June Paik’s German exhibition in 1963 as its official arrival on the scene), it remained somewhat the stepchild, not getting a lot of respect until the last couple decades. And in Miami, video art – good video art – was late in taking hold with local artists and in shows. That’s changed dramatically in recent years, and yet there have been few outlets dedicated to highlighting the form.
Enter The Screening Room, just opened by local filmmaker Rhonda Mitrani, which aims to exclusively host curated video and film programs to help progress the genre here.
The inaugural exhibit (opened on May 16) is from Venezuela-born artist Carola Bravo, “We Are Where We Are Not.” She’s also an architect and thus works with space and visual representations. It’s a nice hybrid of where contemporary video art is; mixing site-specific performance with video, it’s real time and recorded time.
Aloe Blacc featured in a new video singing, “When the Girl You Love Lives in California.”
Songs in the Key of Los Angeles: The Bedrock Sessions is a project of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles presented by KCET’s art and culture transmedia series, Artbound!
