La Bande Vidéo is inviting artists working in media arts to submit an exhibition proposal. La Bande Vidéo seeks to promote practices that develop an original video language that is inherent to the medium. From monobands to installations, the centre supports the presentation of independent work that bends rules.
Production Residency and Exhibition Residency
La Bande Vidéo is inviting artists working in media arts or artists who want to experiment with video to submit proposals for residencies. The artist-in-residence program is available to artists working in Canada and abroad. La Bande Vidéo supports work by artists who are doing their part to move the discipline forward. The centre hopes to receive research projects that explore transfers among media. The selection committee will retained some residency projects for a month-long exhibition in the centre’s gallery.
Artists chosen for residencies receive free access to the centre’s production studios and equipment for a period spanning two weeks to one month. La Bande Vidéo ensures technical support and lodges the artist if required. A complete array of HD equipment is available: digital cameras, shooting material and accessories, production locales (two editing suites, a sound studio and a trial studio for installations), and projection equipment.
Proposals must be submitted by mail before February 1rst, 2010. Please include:
