Channels Festival 2019


Writer and Speaker at the Channels Festival: International Biennial of Video Art 2019 in association with the Writing & Concepts 2019 Lecture Series.

Channels Artistic Director Kelli Alred
Channels Editor & Engagement Curator Laura Couttie
Writing & Concepts Moderators Jan van Schaik & Fjorn Butler

The 2019 Channels Festival seeks to expand notions of difference, connectivity, power and place. Participating artists from Australia and around the globe have been invited to develop and present works that deconstruct notions of belonging, complicity and resistance. Rolling out across Melbourne over three weeks (with the addition of a few post-festival events), the program presents six exhibitions, including two new commissions by Archie Barry and David Rosetzky, four video art screening programs, several performance works and a significant schedule of public artist talks, lectures, conversations and discussions. The 2019 festival situates Australian video art in the context of parallel practices from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, the USA and our neighbours in the Southern Hemisphere.
