Screens: Projecting Media and The Visual Arts

How do screens function as interface between us and the world? What is the role of the screen in contemporary visual arts and media culture? The art of projection has traveled from film theatre to art gallery, from pre-cinematic exhibition to post-medium conditions. We examine this history and archaeology of screen media, and their current cultural and aesthetic dimensions. We explore the architecture of the screen, transforming into environments of screen surfaces and interconnected sites of projection.
