Submit today to Light Assembly Miami, “the first-ever film festival dedicated to assisting artists in that crossover between art and film.”
Light Assembly is a film festival like no other: a mass-scale showcase of video art and architecture. The festival takes place during Art Basel, “with the citywide canvas of Miami Beach and mainland Miami’s modern architectural marvels and historic landmarks.”
In the last decade, visual artists such as Miranda July, Steve McQueen and Julian Schnabel have legitimized the crossover from visual art to filmmaking. Light Assembly is the first-ever film festival dedicated to assisting artists in that crossover between art and film. Light Assembly is also a pilot video art and architecture exposition program unique in the world. Conceived as a beta of Time Zones Chicago, planned for premier in late Summer of 2013, the goal of Light Assembly is to combine large-scale video art projection with the citywide canvas of Miami Beach and mainland Miami’s modern architectural marvels and historic landmarks.
The combination of architecture and video art proposed by Light Assembly will allow a hybrid art form to emerge, one that reinterprets and reimagines the public space of the cities where we live and work. Over the last decades, the equipment needed to make and project video has become increasingly affordable, and transformed how installation work is thought about and made. Yet, the parallel evolution of these distinct art forms has not yet realized its full potential; we believe it is finally time to explore the full possibilities of these art forms, and on a whole new scale.
