Visions in NYC in Miami

Visions in New York City is traveling to Art Basel Miami, Verge Fair. Thanks to Fedele Spadafora, one of our participating artists and Vanessa at the Gitana Rosa Gallery In Williamsburg, NY, we have garnered a spot for the screening on the night of Saturday, December 5th, 2009. Below is the media release. Please feel free to pass it on. If you are going to be there, please email me here at visionsinnyc@gmail.com so we have a chance to speak.

I also want to extend a huge thanks in appreciation for everyone who participated as well as those who made this possible. Congratulations to everyone.


Visions in New York City
Short Films and Videos
Curated by Maurizio Pellegrin and Heather Van Uxem

Presented at The Verge Art Fair by Gitana Rosa Gallery and Fedele Spadafora
Along with Co-curator and Artist Heather Van Uxem
Special screening Saturday, December 5, from 6 to 9pm.
The Catalina Hotel, 1732 Collins Ave


Visions in New York City: Short Films and Videos has been a challenge on three platforms of investigation. The first was the analysis of the hundreds of films and videos submitted for the exhibitions and public screening. The second was the research of the infinite possibilities of interrelation between this material and the usual art-making practices we develop in our Department of Art and Art education. The third was the challenge faced by the participants in my Advanced Studio Course considering their dual roles as individual contributors and co-curators for this project. Visions in New York City is intended as a first of many future encounters on this subject. The project was totally open-ended in term of themes and techniques. We tried however to avoid the established artists. It would have been an easy shopping excursion in the numerous New York galleries and institutions, which are able to provide work by any international artist, if required. Visions in New York City is a simple issue. It is about what people simply are, what they would like to be, what they believe to be.
