In addition, Cramerotti has chosen two pieces of work from Columbia College Chicago students to be displayed alongside major international artists from leading galleries as a part of this year's program.
Embedded within the contemporary art world's strategies of making and display, the combination of moving image works on view makes this program a unique chance to experience visual culture today, said Cramerotti. These exceptional artists’ films and videos open up a new territory of cinematic experience, where the viewer is at the center of the work, and encounters something rarely accessible outside film festivals, exhibitions or specific surveys.
Titled Futuro Anteriore (Future Perfect), this year's program examines the apparent contradiction of this phrase indicating events, experiences and facts that are considered, but remain part of the future. Featuring neither straight experimental video art that anticipates future trends, nor short film that exists as part of a visual tradition, the quality and innovative strength of the works presented make them unique in many respects. The chosen works immerse viewers in stunning exteriors and intimate situations. Various cinema industry mechanisms and established genres are present in this program selection from Hollywood glamour to the Lumiere brothers yet, a huge range of visual innovations and experimental artistic approaches are embedded within these works.
