EAI looks to the future with a special summer screening featuring a group of young artists who are redefining the use of video in contemporary art at the beginning of the century’s second decade. Coming of age in turbulent times, they confront a world in the throes of radical transformation—economic, political, social, technological and biological. The moving image is also evolving in 2011, proliferating and staking a high-definition claim on every screen and each new digital platform. Produced in the last two years, the works in Future Formats offer a glimpse of where artists may take the medium in the coming decade as they harness new technologies and consider their complex implications. The videos in the program range from seductive, immersive CGI investigations and fictional, simulated documentary to commercials without a product and comedic art criticism made for YouTube audiences.
