Moving Image art fair returns to the Waterfront Tunnel for our sixth edition in New York, with works by 27 international artists represented by 25 international galleries and non-profit institutions. Highlights of the 2016 edition include several works making their World Premiere at the fair, including a collaboration between Brazilian artists Marcos Bonisson and Khalil Charif in the form of an assembly of Super 8 footage filmed in many different places in Brazil during the 70’s (presented by Artur Fidalgo galeria, Rio de Janeiro); a commission by the French-Jamaican artist Olivia McGilchrist that explores translocation and issues of Caribbean cultural identity (presented by Davidoff Art Initiative, Basel, Switzerland); a mesmerizing work by New York artist Anne Spalter featuring Macchu Piccu (presented by Impakto Galeria, Lima, Peru); and a real-time animated work by the British collective boredomresearch (presented by DAM Gallery, Berlin).

Among the large-scale installations at this year’s Moving Image New York are a video installation by New York artist Jennifer Dalton that chronicles Dalton’s attempt over the course of one year to learn to execute a standing backflip (presented by Winkleman Gallery, New York); a video installation in a felt tent by Amalie Atkins, which originally debuted at the groundbreaking survey of contemporary Canadian art, Oh, Canada, at MASS MoCA in 2012 (presented by dc3 Art Projects, Edmonton, Canada); a large three-channel installation by Greek artist Kalliopi Lemos who was the recipient of the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection Prize at Moving Image in Istanbul (presented by Gazelli Art House, London and Baku); and a special presentation of Argentine artist Sergio Vega’s acclaimed installation Genesis According to Parrots, which has been presented at the Venice Biennale, the Palais de Tokyo, and had its US premiere at the Miami art space Jenielift just last month (presented by IRL institute, Miami and New York).

SPECIAL EVENTS
Midnight Moment
Lorna Mill’s Mountain Light/Time has been selected from the works at Moving Image to be screened in Times Square as March’s Midnight Moment, March 1-31st, 2016, every night from 11:57 p.m.–midnight. Lorna Mills work is presented at Moving Image by TRANSFER Gallery of Brooklyn, NY.

In partnership with Moving Image, Times Square Arts brings Lorna Mills’ brief GIF of a sunrise over a mountain to Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 pm to midnight every night in March. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts.

Mountain Light/Time is an animated GIF collage of a speedy sunrise over mountain tops, with each loop timed to match the duration of a deep breath. The collage creates a virtual inhalation and exhalation of mountain air and light in the middle of Times Square.

Moving Image Aquisition Award

Acquisition Funds to select a work from Moving Image for the Permanent Collection of 21C Museum Hotels

Moving Image is very pleased to announce details of the 2016 Moving Image Acquisition Award to be presented at the opening reception on March 3, 2016. This year, the Moving Image Acquisition Award will fund the accession of at least one artwork from the fair into 21c’s permanent collection.

The Moving Image Acquisition Award seeks to further the representation of video art in permanent public collections internationally. Previous Awards have gone to artists Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck, Jessica Faiss, Rollin Leonard, Chris Doyle, and Kalliopi Lemos, and the 2016 edition will secure at least one work for 21c’s permanent collection. 21c Museum Hotel is an innovative venture founded ten years ago by preservationists and contemporary art collectors Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson in Lousiville, Kentucky. With the passion to make contemporary art a part of more peoples’ daily lives, the couple embarked on a journey to create both an economic driver for the community and an oasis where art challenges and amuses, stimulates conversation and provokes new ideas.
 Now a multi-venue museum, 21c now has additional locations in Cincinnati, Ohio; Bentonville, Arkansas; Durham, North Carolina; and Lexington, KY; plans are also underway to open in Oklahoma City, OK; Nashville, TN; Kansas City, MO; and Indianapolis, IN.
Moving Image co-founders Murat Orozobekov and Edward Winkleman explained, “21c Museum represents one of the most innovative approaches to collecting and presenting contemporary art to emerge in the recent past. We are delighted and honored in this, their 10th Anniversary year, to have 21c Museum present the Moving Image Acquisition Award. We are also very excited that work from the fair will be entering this impressive collection of contemporary art.”

Alice Gray Stites, 21c Museum Director adds, “21c is dedicated to collaborating with innovative cultural organizations that broaden the audience for contemporary art. We are honored to develop a partnership with Moving Image, as the fair offers an accessible and inspiring art experience to collectors, institutions, and the public alike. Presenting the 2016 Moving Image Acquisition Award creates a great opportunity to express our shared passion for supporting the work of today’s visionary artists working with lens-based technology, and to add a significant new artwork to the 21c collection.”

2nd Opinion

Moving Image New York is very pleased to announce the inauguration of 2nd Opinion, an open call for artists working in film and video art to receive 15-minute one-on-one consultations with current and former members of our Curatorial Advisory Committee and other moving image art professionals. Taking place Saturday, March 4, 12:00-3:00 pm in a large room at the fair, 2nd Opinion’s guest “Master of Ceremonies/Timekeeper” will be noted arts writer, and editor of Art F City, Paddy Johnson.

Moving Image is also purchasing four artist tickets to the annual Art F City SPRNG BRK Fundraiser, to be given out via lottery to 2nd Opinion participants. 2nd Opinion is inspired in part by our experience as consultants at recent Creative Capital Retreats and is designed to give a wider circle of artists opportunities to have their work seen by members of our Curatorial Advisory Committee and other art world professionals.

Conceptually somewhere between a laptop studio visit and speed-dating, 2nd Opinion will provide two 15-minute consultations for each artist selected and matched randomly to our volunteer consultants from a fishbowl of names collected at the fair’s Opening Reception, March 3, 6-8 PM. To be eligible for the random selection, you, or a friend of yours, must enter your name and email address (legibly) at the opening reception (which is free to the public).

The inaugural edition of Moving Image’s 2nd Opinion will include the following consultants:

  • Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, Curator, El Museo del Barrio
  • Sherry Ridlon Dobbin, Director of Public Art, Times Square Alliance
  • Kelani Nichole, Owner and Director, TRANSFER Gallery
  • Roddy Schrock, Director, Eyebeam
  • Leslie Thornton, Artist
  • Edward Winkleman, Co-Founder, Moving Image Art Fair

Thursday March 3rd from 6-8 p.m.
Cocktail Creations featuring Sipsmith Spirits
Please swing by the Tasting Bar at Manhattan Wine Co. as we whip up a few tasty tipples featuring Sipsmith Spirits London Dry Gin and Sloe Gin. Sipsmith Spirits is London’s first copper-pot based distillery in over 180 years. The founders call themselves “sip-smiths”, in reference to the craft of distillation using artisanal methods. We haven’t been this excited about gin for a long time!

Friday March 4th 6- 8 p.m.
Banging Beaujolais

We’re not shy of our love for great Beaujolais and for good reason. The quality level in this region has exploded over recent years and we find ourselves all too often grabbing for a bottle of Beaujolais when deciding what to accompany our dinner. Come taste for yourself and see just how elegant, mineral and refined these wines are when in the right hands.

Saturday March 5th 4:00- 6:00 p.m

Italian Wine Discoveries
Please join us as we taste some off the beaten path Italian Wines. Our shop is brimming with delicious Italian reds perfectly suited for the dinner table. We will also show you how Italian white wine goes well beyond just Pinot Grigio. Come taste our favorites and you’ll probably leave with a new “house” wine.
