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 around the globe, inspiring discourse in places as varied as Berlin, Germany; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria; Los Angeles, California; New Orleans, Louisiana; Skopje, Macedonia; Storrs, Connecticut; Taipei, Taiwan; and Tirana, Albania. Following the widespread popularity and success of PROJECT 35, ICI is collaborating with 35 more international curators to produce PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2.

This fall 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 they use to make video. A new selection of 35 curators from 6 continents will each choose one work for this compilation of the latest approaches to the medium.

Taking advantage of video’s versatility, PROJECT 35 VOLUME 2 can be shown in almost any format or space. It can be projected in a gallery, featured in monthly screenings, or shown on a monitor running in the café or education room. Each DVD is accompanied by a PDF with a short introduction to the work by the selecting curator, and the curators’ and artists’ bios.
