On December 17th and 18th White Box Museum of Art has the pleasure to open its door to InsideOut Step2 – Latest trends in Western Videoart, an international selection from the first two editions of Arte Video Roma Festival proposed by C.A.R.M.A. – Applied Multimedia Art and Research Center (Rome, Italy). The selection will include some of the most interesting works collected by the curatorial board Le Momo Electronique during its several years monitoring work on Italian and foreign productions, with a special attention to works from artists under-40. Although quite young, many of the artists have already won important awards in Italy and in other countries, and several are widely known into international circuits.

Nine Artists from America, North Europe and Italy will be screened in the prestigious Media Center of White Box Museum of Art.Asthe curators explain,”Even if each artist has his own particular characteristics, specific methods of work and personal research directions, they have in common some precise elements, some specific trends, a certain approach to technologies and some theoretical understandings. In all cases, these works show a “narrative” level that is clearly and radically experimental, not just from the technological point of view (even if they often use the most advanced devices and methods of production), but especially with regard to construction of metaphors: no dialogue, no story, no drama… These artists, by using the language of “pure audiovision”, are trying to bring to reality possibilities of meaning forbidden to forms of expression that are centered on the word… It is never a surrogate of reality but an original phenomenon, readable in its natural evolution of the form… Exactly by reading the directions of these mutations, conceived and practiced as writing, symbolic but yet mobile, we can often find their main access points to its sense”.

InsideOut Step2 is the second Phase of the Project InsideOut in 2010. Since the event was held in Rome in collaboration with Zhang Peili, the master of Chinese Video Art in China, C.A.R.M.A has shown its intent to create a basis for the construction of a stable flow of exchanges, with regard to this form of expression, between the West and the Far East.

White Box Museum, as a relevant supporter of Chinese Video Artists since 2009, has seen a common of intent between these two important No-profit institutions.

The promotion of these international artists in Beijing today is an important historical event, especially considering that China is about to become not only one of the main reference point in the economic sector, but also one of the major driving regions in the cultural field. White Box Museum of Art and C.A.R.M.A. are really pleased to collaborate for this First step of cultural exchange with also the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in Beijing ( IIC ) , Lab-Yit | The Italian Contemporary Art Platform in China, and Confucius Institute – Sapienza University of Rome.
