Skowhegan is excited to announce its first ever Two Channel Video Festival.
Almost three years ago, the Skowhegan Alliance identified the lack of opportunities to exhibit multi-channel video works. It is a hard medium to accommodate: two-channel works are never fully realized in a traditional film screening, but a proper installation can require a skillset ranging from programming to pipe sawing.
After an immeasurable amount of dedication, labor, and optimism from the project’s organizer Gregory Kalliche (A ’15), advising from other Alliance members, critical support from staff Chris Carroll (A ’08), and patience from the participating artists, we have something to show you: four weeks of two-channel video art, in three different configurations, from 23 artists.
