A Broken Link

A Broken Link

A Broken Link is a survey of contemporary practice in artist film and video. The themes explored include ideas of temporal and geographical displacement, of how digital technologies bring people and ideas together but also reinforce the essence of distance and alienation.

Please note: All tickets are priced at $15 for this session – Gift Passes are unable to be used.

A survey of contemporary practice in artist film and video in Australia and UK

Comprised of two discrete programs based on location, A Broken Link‘s UK program has been curated by Simon Hollington and Andrew Marsh (based in London) and the Australian program has been curated by Samantha Ferris and Claire Taylor (based in Sydney). In presenting works made between 2007 and 2016, A Broken Link surveys emerging digital imaginaries during that period. The project is a meditation on slippage and displacement, exploring how artists reconcile the local and the global within their work.
