In a day of keynote presentations, roundtable discussion and screenings this symposium aims to broaden the scope of knowledge of Slide-tape, exploring the history, artists and aesthetics of this often overlooked artform and is importance in the field of artists’ moving image media.
The symposium will examine the histories and context of artists’ use of slide-tape forms and consider why significant works have been removed from curatorial histories to date. The symposium will also explore and reappraise the potential of slide-tape as a medium for new narrative forms.
The symposium will close with refreshments and an introductory talk by Felicity Sparrow, partner of Ian Breakwell, prior to the screening of BC/AD, his last major work charting his decline from lung cancer, along with Tina Keane’s Clapping Songs.
The symposium is part of a larger project, Slide-tape: Key Works in the UK since the 1970s, taking place at Vivid Projects Birmingham until 16th November. www.vividprojects.org.uk
