Spanning the fields of video art, installation, experimental film practices, photography and new media, Re:Cinema examines an expanded idea of the cinematic in relation to the contemporary image-scape; cinema itself is considered not as a strict formal entity, but rather as a persistent conceptual and visual presence that informs a wide range of visual production and artistic inquiry. As such the cinematic is regarded not so much as a cohesive and totalising system but rather as a trace element of contemporary visual culture. Re:Cinema is a binational exhibition project; this first exhibition at the SCA Galleries will be followed by a second at Parsons, The New School for Design in New York during December. Both will feature work by current research students from the two institutions as well as alumni and faculty members.
