Curated by Nina Colosi
Perpetual Art Machine(PAM) is a living archive and research project consisting of 21st century international video art which features over 1300 works from more than 700 artists representing over 70 countries. They culminate together in an array of immersive, interactive video experiences. The idea first manifested itself in December 2005 as a collaboration between the artists Lee Wells, Raphaele Shirley, Chris Borkowski and Aaron Miller who shared a vision to democratize the curatorial process by inviting both the artist and the viewer/user to participate via interactive installations as well as online through PAM's free community video portal. In just over one year, PAM has been showcased in 9 countries through installations, screenings and lectures, while most recently being displayed at Art Basel Miami as well as at Scope Hamptons.
Alongside of the PAM installation the exhibition will be featuring single and multi-channel video installations from the most innovative artists in the PAM community including workin by: Janet Biggs, Peer Bode, Cliff Evans, Wai Kit Lam, Patrick Lichty, Xu Tan, plus others to be announced.
