NURTUREart is pleased to present its first ever video exhibition in the new project space: Videorover: Season I curated by Rachel Steinberg, featuring artists: Johannes DeYoung, Andy Cahill, Giana Marie Gambino, Hong-An Truong, Naomi Safran-Hon, Scott Kiernan, Victor Faccinto, Allen Calpe, Brittany Prater, Justin Mata, Yeon Jin Kim, and Lily & Honglei.
Season I of Videorover presents a group of artists who, despite the diversity of their work, are all concerned with the reality disconnect that is specific to four-dimensional media. These artists have each created an alternate dimension where life is filtered through a sieve of creative unconscious and realities are discarded and re-imagined. The videos are an amalgamation of the uncanny, the political and the everyday, presented to us in a variety of animation and editing styles. We see the world through a new set of eyes, a digital dream-scape of rewired sensibilities.

In the past decade, as equipment has become more available and youtube has given fame to any ordinary citizen of the Internet, the world of video has swelled exponentially. It has become an expanding universe where time and space are acknowledged as one entity. Throughout the advances in technology and sophistication of the medium, the compulsion has remained to record and recondition the everyday experience. To encourage and support up-and-coming artists working in this format, NURTUREart is launching a space dedicated solely to showcasing emerging video artists. This selection of videos will run continuously in the space adjacent to the main gallery through the rest of the 2010-2011 exhibition series.

Videorover is made possible by the generosity of the Liebovitz Foundation.
