London Tate Modern
17-19 April 2009

This conference will investigate an expanding field of film and video
art from multi-screen, immersive, performance-based live-projections
through to interactive, digital and virtual reality multi-media events.
The conference is part of an AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council)
funded project entitled Narrative Exploration in Expanded Cinema set up
by the late Dr Jackie Hatfield. Conducted by Duncan White and David
Curtis, the project - based at the British Artists Film and Video Study
Collection at Central St Martins, College of Art & Design (University
of the Arts London) in collaboration with Duncan of Jordanstone College
of Art & Design, Dundee - seeks to explore the various histories of
expanded cinema and their impact on the question of narrative, space
and time in experimental film and art practices.

Coined in the mid-1960s by Stan Vanderbeek but with its origins in the
experiments of early Twentieth Century avant-garde filmmaking, media-
technologies and performance art, Expanded Cinema is a film and video
practice which activates the live context of watching, transforming
cinema's historical and cultural 'architectures of reception' into
sites of cinematic experience that are heterogeneous, performative and
non-determined. Works identified as Expanded Cinema often open up
questions surrounding the spectator's construction of time/space
relations, activating the spaces of cinema and narrative as well as
other contexts of media reception. In doing so it offers an alternative
and challenging perspective on filmmaking, visual arts practices and
the narratives of social space, everyday life and cultural communication.

Prior to the Conference, during March, the Conference website will
begin to publish a number of papers and interview transcripts that have
been generated by the Narrative Exploration in Expanded Cinema project
during the past 18 months. These will include Duncan White's interviews
with Carolee Schneemann, William Raban, Guy Sherwin, Peter Weibel,
Malcolm LeGrice and others; and a streamed record of our previous
public event The Live Record at the BFI Southbank in December 2008.

During the Conference, a videotheque will be available containing
documentation of over 70 classic expanded cinema works by more than 30
artists recorded at two recent Expanded Cinema events in Germany, made
available to us courtesy the artists and the Expanded Cinema Study
Collection of Hartware MedienKunstVerein Dortmund and Württembergischer
Kunstverein Stuttgart.
