Later in March 2014 I attended Curating the Moving Image, a two day intensive at the Arnolfini in Bristol run by Al Cameron, Associate Curator of Performance, and Bridget Crone, curator and Visiting Tutor at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Attended by curators, academics, students and artists, this was a fascinating reminder of the history of artist film and video along with presentations and discussion about curating moving image work in the contemporary context of constantly accessible images and videos, online curated platforms, festivals and specially devised spaces. Also devices used for delineating a framework for experiencing the moving image and concepts of attention span.

Background reading included The Sensible Stage: Staging and the Moving Image (Picture This / Cornerhouse, 2012) and The Place of Artists’ Cinema: Space, Site and Screen (Bristol and Chicago: Intellect and University of Chicago Press, 2009).
