With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the cancellation and/or postponement of events and gatherings worldwide, arts organizations have grappled with the question of when to go online, how to pull it off, and how to not take it too far. Within independent and experimental media art, the intimacy of collective viewing is a big part of how work is intended to be experienced. How can we watch together while apart, and how can we create spaces of attention and care for artworks, artists, and ideas in the online space?
To begin addressing these questions, practical and theoretical, Images Festival staff will present a zoom workshop with Images 2020 as a case study. Presenters include Executive Director Samuel La France, Artistic Director Steffanie Ling, and Operations Director Barbora Racevičiūtė.
