SIXTY MINUTES

Event Type: Exhibition
Facility: Contemporary Art Museum
Presented By: USF Institute for Research in Art
Description: 
The SIXTY MINUTES program is curated by David Norr, Chief Curator for the Institute for Research in Art.

SIXTY MINUTES is a single channel video program designed to highlight and explore artists' practice and influences. The program takes its cue from the increasing popularity of video essays, often 
presented in the form of YouTube mash-ups, as an emerging form of literacy and commentary. Artists are invited to create what are in effect multimedia compositions using preexisting footage, juxtaposed 
and combined into a single, one-hour video montage, meant to create the opportunity for a kind of open source, active reading that draws connections to source materials and interjects ideas about 
the artists' work and process. The program will be inaugurated this summer in the West Gallery and will feature videos by Olaf Breuning, Kate Gilmore, Louis Gispert, and William Villalongo, alongside 
interview-based profiles with each artist. SIXTY MINUTES is conceived to expose the diversity and complexity of artists' process and provide an inspiring critical space to research, analyze and debate 
contexts for practice now and in the future.
