Global Residents


Latin America's largest exhibition devoted to video work, the 16th International Electronic Art Festival_SESC Videobrasil opens on September 30th and runs through October 30th. Its focus is the juried exhibition, Southern Panoramas, which gathers 66 works by artists from 17 countries with emerging talent from Brazil and neighboring Latin American states represented heavily. The event also features solo exhibitions and screening series of work by other distinguished film and video figures including Peter Greenaway, Marcel Odenbach, Kenneth Anger, and Eder Santos, among others. A new addition to the festival, this year's edition will also feature the announcement of artists selected for an inaugural series of artist residencies sponsored by the Associacao Cultural Videobrasil--the organization behind the festival. Already international in its scope, the residencies stand to further the festival's presence overseas, offering four Brazilian video artists and four from abroad the opportunity to work at institutions in France, The Netherlands, and of course, Brazil during a period spanning from 2008 to 2009.
