As new videos are being uploaded daily to artplayer, there is loads of new territory to explore across all strands of the art sector. This week’s highlights include an experiment in social media from AND Festival, Corridor8’s issue no 3.2 launch speaker, a musical summer school from Milapfest and a dot-art interview with a painter drawn to spirals and geometric shapes.
AND FESTIVAL: FOLLOW – EPISODE TWO
This second in a series of short films documents a digital age experiment by London-based performance artist Scottee (@ScotteeScottee). The video traces Scottee’s mission to culminate (rather successfully) a cult following for his female Twitter persona @sodamntrue. Directed by Tim Brunsden, the full-length feature film will be screened during AND Festival. This snippet on artplayer captures the artist’s partner breaking up with him live on film and Scottee’s cavalier response, as he asks his ex to tweet about the split.
CORRIDOR8: ROGER LUCKHURST AT S1 ARTSPACE
As part of Northern art and critical writing journal Corridor8‘s launch for issue no 3.2, Professor Roger Luckhurst talked about the inspiration behind the insert in the journal. The event took place at S1 Artspace in Sheffield. He revisited New Yorker Richard Kostelanetz’s seminal art and writing publication Breakthrough Fictioneers (1973). Luckhurst offers an insightful discussion into the avant-garde practices of artists and writers working in the New York scene during the late Sixties and early Seventies.
MILAPFEST: MUSIC INDIA SUMMER SCHOOL
Music India Summer School is the one week intensive course put on by the Liverpudlian Milapfest, a leading cultural organisation promoting Indian performing arts. This year’s Summer School will run from 13th August to 19th August 2012 at the Creative Campus at Liverpool Hope University. The course offers several branches of Indian music: Hindustani music, Carnatic music, Tamyo and Tarang composition and ensemble development.
DOT-ART: MEET THE ARTIST: CLARE ELLIS
A series of videos by dot-art show the artists behind the artwork on www.dot-art.com. In this video, Liverpool-based painter Claire Ellis discusses her working processes, inspiration and background as an artist.
