THE COPRODUCED COMISSION

— The role of curators, patrons and gallerists in the commission of video art

Thursday 22 November 2018, 12 pm

Any production process integrates a series of economical, legal and material considerations that determine to a great extent the creative process and final result of the work of art. In the case of video art this is specially so due to the complexities of its distribution and collection. Thus, commissioned works are often the result of a coproduction in which the artist receives inputs from curators, patrons and/or gallerists. This meeting proposes to explore what the role of these agents is in the creation process of video art.
