No Media Is The Message
A screening of Malcolm Le Grice's video artworks presented by Dr. Lanfranco Aceti, lecturer in Contemporary Art and Digital Culture at the School of History of Art, Film and Visual Media, Birkbeck College. The screening will be followed by a conversation with the artist about his move from Film to Video to Digital.
Malcolm Le Grice will discuss if any aspects of artistic content or strategy can survive this move and show a selection of his video artworks starting with Little Dog for Roger (1967). The artist will also review his involvement with the digital through computer work and discuss the concepts of non-linearity, interactivity, the hybridity of production and distribution systems, including Internet distribution with YouTube.
The event is in collaboration with the Computer Arts Society.
