Online exhibition: recess presents

Exhibition and Shows

8 May 2020 to 24 Jul 2020

For this exhibition, recess draws from diverse points across the lands that make up contemporary Australia to showcase artists who explore documentary and fiction through experimental approaches to the video medium.

A recess implies a suspension of time, or a break in formal proceedings. It is also an indented space created by natural or human building, a space connected to but apart from the rest. This indent in time or space defines an approach to exhibiting contemporary moving image works, drafts and creative texts.

Telling stories is at the core of these digital works, recess presents will run entirely online to continue to tell these stories to at-home audiences. Every week a new video and complementary text will appear online. Each video will be up for two weeks, meaning there is a one-week overlap between the works. At the end of each fortnight, the earlier video will be taken down but its text will remain archived on the site.
