CINEMA IN/AND CONTEMPORARY ART

“An other cinema”/“othered cinema” (Raymond Bellour/Erika Balsom), “artist’s cinema” (Maeve Connolly), “cinema d’exposition” (Jean-Christophe Royoux), “le temps exposé” (Dominique Païni), these are just a few of many terms commonly employed to define an ubiquitous practice of exhibiting film in gallery/museum space. Considering an immense variety of moving-image installations in contemporary art galleries and museums, I draw attention to particular artworks that address specific aspects of cinema’s ontology and epistemology (e.g., spatio-temporality, filmic duration, production and reproduction of screen memories), in particular, and/or reflect film history(-ies), in general. Following Balsom’s understanding of gallery as “a laboratory for film, a place in which its social, technological and aesthetic history can be picked over and recycled”, I am interested in artworks by filmmakers and contemporary artists, who conceive a contemporary art spaces as new venues to reconsider what cinema is/was. You could find more on this in my blog "An Other Cinema".
