Project 35 Volume 2
Künstlerhaus Stuttgart
October 10, 2013 - December 8, 2013.

In 2010 ICI launched PROJECT 35, a program of single-channel videos selected by 35 international curators who each chose one work from an artist they think is important for audiences around the world to experience today. The resulting selection has been presented simultaneously in more than 30 venues around the globe, inspiring discourse in places as varied as Berlin, Germany; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria; Los Angeles, California; New Orleans, Louisiana; Skopje, Macedonia; Storrs, Connecticut; Taipei, Taiwan; and Tirana, Albania. Following the widespread popularity and success of PROJECT 35, ICI is collaborating with 35 more international curators to produce PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2. ICI is once again drawing from its extensive network of curators to trace the complexity of regional and global connections among practitioners and the variety of approaches they use to make video. 35 curators from 6 continents each chose one work for this compilation, showcasing a variety of artists’ takes on the medium.
