Film/Video. Experimental/Avant-garde. Exhibition/Installation. Cinema/Gallery.

What is the difference between video art and experimental film?

Surprisingly, Yahoo does not have the definitive answer, perhaps because trying to confine these two cinematic 'forms' to fixed terms is as fraught as the historical relationship between film and video.

In this Screen Off, we explore the intertwined historical trajectories of experimental film and video art, and expose the tensions that have emerged from attempts to define the two forms. By juxtaposing projections of 16mm experimental films with new video art, we pit the stylistic legacies of the likes of Bruce Conner and Stan Brakhage against their 2014 descendants (or in some cases, opponents). New video art dissects the principles of Bart Simpson, emojis, chess games, memory's surreal dimensions, culture collisions and visual music.
