Announcing Moving Image in London, October 13-16, 2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Moving Image Announces 2011 Fair in London
On the heels of the successful launch in New York in March 2011, we are very pleased to announce we will produce Moving Image: An Art Fair of Contemporary Video Art in London opposite Frieze Art Fair in October 2011.
Moving Image has been conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving-image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms. The newly formed Moving Image Curatorial Advisory Committee for London is inviting a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions to present single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations.
Curatorial Advisory Committee for Moving Image London:
- Edwin Carels, Festival Programmer, International Film Festival Rotterdam (Ghent, Belgium)
- John Connelly, Director, Felix Gonzalez-Torres Foundation (New York, USA)
- Solange Farkas, Director, Associação Cultural Videobrasil (São Paulo, Brazil)
- Mami Kataoka, Chief Curator, Mori Art Museum (Tokyo, Japan)
- Elizabeth Neilson, Director, Zabludowicz Collection (London, UK)
Moving Image will take place October 13 –16, 2011, at Bargehouse, a few minutes walk from the Tate Modern along London’s South Bank.
Oxo Tower Wharf
London SE1 9PH, UK
Bargehouse is easily accessible from Waterloo and Southwark Underground stations. It is an impressive 4-story warehouse within Oxo Tower Wharf. The space is raw and is rented out throughout the year for corporate events and private parties. Bargehouse is owned and managed by Coin Street Community Builders (www.coinstreet.org).
Moving Image gratefully acknowledges the generous support for our London fair by our media partners and sponsors (list in formation):

Murat and I are so in love with the location we've secured for Moving Image in London. The Bargehouse is this wonderfully raw space with all these great rooms for projections or installations. The way you move through it, with each room a new discovery, is fun unto itself (one art world visitor said it feels like a miniature PS1). Here's a photo of the space as seen from the walkway along the Thames (all photographs are Murat's handiwork):
Here's the view from one of the rooms on the 2nd floor:
And here's one of the 12 rooms we'll have for installations (admittedly one of the larger ones):
And Anny Shaw has written a lovely piece for The Art Newspaper that provides a bit more insights into what's going to be the same in London and how the fair is evolving there too.
