via DUMBO ARTS FEST
Dumbo Arts Center’s video_dumbo is a festival for contemporary video art curated by Caspar Stracke and Gabriela Monroy. The festival provides local emerging artists with an exhibition platform and is augmented by a number of established, international selections. video_dumbo is part of the annual Dumbo Arts Festival. The goal of video_dumbo is to expand the audience for video art. The focus of video_dumbo is on the ideas and methods of video artists, who often work in an impressionistic, non-linear manner rather than in traditional narrative structures, thus distinguishing video_dumbo from a traditional short film festival.
