Nurture Art: Videorover #8 - Press Release
Opening on June 27, the third installation involves artists Dave Greber, Derek G. Larson, and Sofia Quirno. Relating again to the idea of reconfiguration, this time through humor, these works transform the gallery into an almost unrelatable space. Deeply rooted in the uncanny, these works borrow from the sensibilities of painterly abstraction to create a space of overwhelming stimulus. Confronting us with a cocktail of comic absurdity and mundane but somehow chaotic repetition, we are presented with the more vibrant potential of video.

NURTUREart's Videorover: Season 8 is curated by Rachel Steinberg and features works by artists Dave Greber, Victoria Keddie, Derek G. Larson, Brendan Lee, Beatriz Meseguer, Sofia Quirno, Alona Rodeh, Adam Douglas Thompson and Raul Valverde. Videorover, NURTUREart’s dedicated video program, aims at becoming an ever-expanding forum for emerging and underrepresented artists working in video.

This season’s video works explore the idea of video as installation, highlighting the immersive potential that time based media hold. Through audio and visual tools and using the body as a reference point, this exhibition aims to interrupt our exteroceptive senses. For three weeks in June, Videorover: Season 8 will take over NURTUREart’s main gallery space; opening in shifts for a series of three consecutive installations. Each installation will feature three of the selected artists, to allow for the works to expand in the space, while still in dialogue with the larger group of works.
