Please join us from March 8th through March 11th for the second presentation of Moving Image, the Contemporary Video Art Fair. Coinciding with The Armory Show in New York and within walking distance of of Independent, Moving Image is located in the the Waterfront Tunnel event space between 27th and 28th Streets with an entrance on 11th Avenue in Chelsea.

Entrance to Moving Image is free and open to the public.

Josh Azzarella’s Untitled #105 (SFDF), 2009-2011 continues the artist’s practice of appropriation by isolating three pivotal moments from 1933’s groundbreaking movie King Kong. The work is comprised of three seamlessly looped HD video channels, each with 5.1 surround sound that combine to create a 15.3 surround sound experience. Azzarella suspends the iconic scenes, merging them with newly captured footage to create a naturalistic environment. In this fusion, tropical pools ripple and vines sway in anticipation of the thunderous entry of the protagonist, but instead the viewer is held transfixed in a moment. Untitled #105 (SFDF) displaces our experience of filmic events and challenges our grasp of legendary eminence.

With an international selection of 30 single-channel videos and installations from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, and North America, Moving Image has been conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving-image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms.
