Representing Black Power: Handling A "Revolution" In The Age Of Mass Media, Craig Peariso Apr 2015

Representing Black Power: Handling A "Revolution" In The Age Of Mass Media, Craig Peariso

Craig J. Peariso

After attending a Black Panther Party press conference in 1967, a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “If a Hollywood director were to choose them as stars of a movie melodrama of revolution, he would be accused of typecasting” (quoted in Moore 1971: 257). While this reporter quickly backed away from suggesting that there was anything suspicious about the Panthers’ media-friendly tactics—saying that party founders Bobby Seale and Huey Newton “are not actors and this is not Hollywood”—others were not so politic. Drama critic Robert Brustein, for example, wrote that the party’s press conferences and photo-ops ...

Copyright Innovation In Art, Stephen Marvin

Stephen Marvin

Art should be considered for its innovative expression. With art, comes context. The context of the work may be a reinterpretation or means of communicating a review, criticism, or other comment. Challenges of rights ownership, registration and copyright related to art imagesare helping create greater public interaction. Libraries, archives and museums are engaged with challenges of copyright while introducing digitization, access, considerations among owners, registrars, artists, publishers, scholars, and those with a passion for particular worksof art, artists or artistic themes. Copyright is important to consider in advance of the worksdisplayed. Documentation and agreements need to be flexible to meet ...

Hoop, Kate Walker

Kate Walker

A whole football field of queer people, hula hooping in formation, moving in unison, individuals involved in a mass action together. This was my initial vision for this project. Early video art in the 1960’s was often used to document political events, ephemeral moments, and transient communities. New technology had turned its lens against mainstream media, and made room at the dinner table for alternate voices. What does a queer aesthetic look like in 2010? How can queer community and art come together in relation to specific locations and current issues? These are some of the questions asked by ...

Capitol, Kate Walker Dec 2011

Capitol, Kate Walker

Kate Walker

This project involves students and faculty from Boise State University Art Department in a semi-reenactment of Raphael’s “The School of Athens”, 1510-11. Rather than the homogenous cultural elite of Raphael’s painting, which depicts philosophers, scientists and artists of classical Greece and the high Renaissance, we see an ordinary and diverse group of students. This project aims to open up a conversation around civic agency and ‘group’ identity by tracing a shift between a ‘staged’ informal gathering of people, which recalls day-to-day campus life or a similar public meeting space into this formal tableau from another era.

...Touch...Pause...Engage, Kate Walker

Kate Walker

Two of Kate Walker’s works Player Black and The Defenders 1 reflect her interest in making art as a record, sourcing everyday events and cultural ephemera for their story telling potential. Both render parts of rubgy players in the act of kicking or being tackled, and in The Defenders 1 Walker paints the figures over floral wallpaper.

Square2 (Screening), Kate Walker Dec 2010

Square2 (Screening), Kate Walker

Kate Walker

HooP (2010) is a work by video artist Kate Walker, made in collaboration with the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered) community in Nelson. It documents a public event staged by the artist, where members of this community participated in a mass hula hooping event. This followed weeks of practice, and the formation of a diverse and inter-generational group of keen participants.

Swaying hips, circular rhythms and shuffling feet resound in the film. Moments of pathos, seriousness and vulnerability are inevitably punctured by the innate humour of the mass hula event. Both the euphoria of collective action, and more personal ...

Inside Out: Representations Of Women And Work On Popular Television, Liz Linden, Jen Kennedy

Liz Linden

Inside Out: Pregnant Actresses Playing Nonpregnant Characters, a video montage by artist Liz Linden, was originally exhibited in combination with the video Outside In : Fictional Commercials for Real Products at Art in General in New York in Hay 2009. Both videos use appropriated television clips to point to the formal and ideological mechanisms ~that structure our relationship to materials and content that we are confronted with on an almost daily basis, but which are often overlooked or dismissed as benign or banal. Displayed side-by-side on TV monitors, a reference to the videos' source material, together Inside Out and Outside In ...

Hoop, Kate Walker

Kate Walker

In HooP members of the LGBT community in Nelson, New Zealand gather for a mass hula hoop event, in this work about body physicality and visual spectacle. Swaying hips, circular rhythms and shuffling feet resound. Moments of pathos, seriousness and vulnerability are punctured by the innate humour of the mass hula event. This art work confounds the stereotypes of queer communities. The usual reasons queer community might gather are to organise for political or social action, or to socialize without a sense of being 'other'. Something else is happening here. 

The history of video art as a document of community ...

The M At The End Of The Earth, Kate Walker, Cliff Fell Dec 2007

The M At The End Of The Earth, Kate Walker, Cliff Fell

Kate Walker

The M at the End of the Earth is a cross-disciplinary video project, which moves between the genres of poetry and video art. The nostalgic experience of the great American road trip with its associations of endless space is reenacted using landscape footage of the American Southwest. This footage of US Route 95 in Nevada runs alongside the Nevada Test Site. The voice over is a reading of a section of Fell’s poem of the same name, published in his collection Beauty of the Badlands (Victoria University Press, 2008).
