The VideoLake Festival 2012 pályázat

Majdnem teljes a Videolake Fesztivál zsűrije! Felkéréseinket eddig három fiatal kurátor fogadta el, Somosi Rita, Daniela Hahn és Nádudvari Noémi már biztosan részt vesznek a válogatásban. Az idén debütáló videó fesztivál az ARTplacc égisze alatt egy konténervárosban várja majd a Tihanyba látogató közönséget. A fesztivál Közép-Kelet Európából származó, de a világ bármely táján élő videó- és média művészek munkáit várja, idén “A víz legyen Veled” témakörben.

A zsűri által kiválasztott műveket nem csak Tihanyban, hanem Budapesten, Bécsben és Londonban is megnézheti majd a nagyérdemű, mint az ARTplacc levezető eseményeit – hasonlóan a Krisztina Palace-ban rendezett felvezető kiállításokhoz. Így az ARTplacc Fesztivál nemcsak 10 napig ígér minőségi szórakoztatást, hanem egy egész éven át ébren tartja a kortárs művészetek álommanóit.

A Videolake Fesztivál hivatalos nyelve az angol, tekintettel a külföldi művészekre és vendégekre.
