In 2010 ICI launched PROJECT 35, a program of single-channel videos selected by 35 international curators who each chose one work from an artist they think is important for audiences around the world to experience today. The resulting selection has been presented simultaneously in more than 30 venues, inspiring discourse in places as varied as Berlin, Germany; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria; Los Angeles, California; and Tirana, Albania, assuring a place for video’s reach on a global scale.
Following the widespread popularity and success of PROJECT 35, ICI is collaborating with 35 more international curators to produce PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2. ICI again draws from its extensive network of curators to trace the complexity of regional and global connections among practitioners and the variety of approaches used to make video. This new selection of 35 curators from 6 continents each chose one work for this compilation.
PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2 is a traveling exhibition produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. The exhibition is made possible, in part, by grants from the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, and the Robert Lehman Foundation; the ICI Board of Trustees; and donors to ICI’s Access Fund.
The exhibition of PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2 at Boise State University has been funded, in part, by the Arts and Humanities Institute and the IDAHO FILM COLLECTION.
Artist Markus Hansen utilizes photography and video to create double portraits in which he assumes the facial expressions, posture, and emotional state of others to express what they may be feeling. Hansen is interested in how information is communicated and transmitted between individuals and across generations and with the non-verbal ways in which people are connected by shared experiences.
