Over screening periods of several weeks, selected Australian artists will have their single channel video work screened as part of dTV -? taking visitors to Federation Square on a journey into to the world of contemporary video art.
Presented by dLux Media Arts in partnership with Fed Sq, the dTV series presents a variety of works of art featuring a broad range of approaches which are arranged into thematic groups exploring differing aspects of the genre.
Sometimes the artists themselves appear as protagonists, characters or as self portraits. Stepping beyond recording performances, these artists have engaged with screen based media on a variety of levels and exploring identity, historical positioning, reportage, cultural propriety and social paradigms.
There are clear references not only to painting, sculpture and performance art, but also to film making and theatre, with set and costume design, staging, lighting and special effects all playing vital roles in production.
