Loops.Expanded 2020 in SPAIN
The first exhibition of Loops.Expanded will be in Madrid in the Video Art Festival PROYECTOR from 9 to 20th of September 2020.
Loops.Expanded 2020 international open call: we’re thrilled about what we’ve got!
The quality and diversity of the 257 works submitted by artists and collectives from 43 countries and 4 continents (including self-determined ‘Transnational’ and ‘European’ ones) are already a testimony of the loop strengths and vitality. The works length range from a few seconds up to infinite loops and the intended exhibiting formats include outdoor projections, multiscreen installations, GIFs, gallery exhibitions and theatre screenings.
We’re looking forward to sharing our Annual Selection results at the end of June. The selected works will be invited to take part in different exhibitions in Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands, Italy and Brazil. Each curatorial partner will select one or more works and, depending on local conditions, the form of the exhibition could include shows or screenings in museums, galleries, theatres or outdoors screenings, symposiums and/or masterclasses.
Thank you to all the artists and collectives taking part in this international and decentralized network, dedicated to exhibiting and researching the concept and the form of the loop in video art / moving image. We want to explore an inter-related and interdependent approach in a global video art landscape and empower different perspectives to a unique form: from pre-cinema to the present time of computational, sound and audiovisual “infinite loops”. And all we can say by now is that this first annual sample makes this experiment truly encouraging. See you at the end of June
