[Nettime-bold] ART IN MOTION II: Media Festival


ANNOUNCEMENT

The Second Annual International Festival of Time-Based Media
Presented by the University of Southern California School of Fine Arts,
in collaboration with the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

Thursday – Saturday, February 15, 16, 17
All events are FREE and open to the public

The USC School of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Santa Monica Museum 
of Art, is delighted to present AIM II – three days of exhibitions, 
performances, screenings, a symposium, a gala reception/award ceremony, and 
an education outreach program hosted on both the USC campus and at the 
SMMoA.

Unlike most venues which organize around a specific media or genre, AIM II 
is organized around a central theme,"The Vanishing Author?", and the only 
criteria for submission is that works be 'time-based'.

The 43 works selected for the festival were chosen from a pool of over 600 
applicants from 29 countries and include film, video, digital video, 
interactive games, animations, sound pieces, CD-ROM’s, websites, 
installations, and performances.

An outline of festival events and the names of participating artists are 
listed below.
