Time is love Screening is an annual exhibition of projectable videos from an international selection of artists active around the world. The screening explicitly emphasizes the idea of love in these hard times and socio-cultural interference, the way in which technology and society give rise to new forms of artistic expression by using the new media.
The project aims to consider the work of these artists as part of the global phenomenon that is contemporary art, and asks the audience to reflect upon how the time that led to the production of these works was formed. Conceptually diverse, emotionally incisive and visually inventive, the selected works transform the most familiar video art into an illuminating investigation of contemporary culture.
Time is Love.4 brings to the world a refreshing perspective on video art.
