OSW began…

Call for Papers | Anonymous: The Void in Visual Culture – Fusion Issue 9 2016

fusion

Deadline: Aug 3, 2015 Editors: Dr Sam Bowker & Professor Craig Bremner, Charles Sturt University Ever since Vasari published the ‘Vite’ in 1550, art history has been skewed in favour of named individuals whose biographies can be unveiled or re-evaluated. However, the majority of contributions to visual culture do not fit this criterion. If it is impossible to determine an artists’ name, some of the most significant cultural and commercial imperatives for new scholarship are lost. Due to related methodological prejudices, analyses primarily drawn from material culture have been reserved for ‘inferior’ contributions to visual culture. The presentation of anonymous…

Lecture | Philip Brophy Voiding Effects & Terrorised Language: Video and the Unreality of ISIS (Part 2) | West Space

Brophy

Part 2 of Brophy’s Discipline lecture at the Wheeler Centre, ‘Terror Vision: Video and the Unreality of ISIS’ by Philip Brophy, will take place at West Space this Thursday 16 July, from 6–8pm. This is an opportunity to hear the rest of Philip’s lecture, and for discussion. The clutch of late 2013/early 2014 ISIS videos have been near-unanimously accepted as being real—mostly out of fear that they might be real. Yet the videos employ multi-camera set-ups, pixel-tracking, void-compositing, particle effects and diffusion plug-ins which are utilised in Hollywood, television advertising and video art production—all of whom ape cinematic effects for various…

Exhibition | Screen Series: Displaced Agency | BLINDSIDE

Pip Ryan, Happy Orang, 2015. Photography Matthew Stanton

For it’s fifth edition, BLINDSIDE’s annual project SCREEN SERIES features work by Italian artist Anna Franceschini, Australian artists Nathan Ceddia, Pip Ryan and Ryan Wilson, and Indonesian arts collective Tromarama. Curated by Anabelle Lacroix and Xanthe Dobbie, DISPLACED AGENCY will focus on the potential of the object. Demonstration is often central to the moving image, especially in the context of an exchange of information – whether tangible (educational, physical) or intangible (experiential, philosophical). What happens when figures are removed and objects enliven as props given agency? Can the performative act be delegated? Objects in situations with other objects create tensions.…
