Loop VideoArt Festival is back!
ttp://www.loop-barcelona.com” target=”_blank”>LOOP’09 is back with a new program [PDF] that explores the links between video art and other arts disciplines. This year’s highlights include “Décadrages” [1], a selection of works from the largest contemporary art collection in France, and the Spanish premiere of Johan Grimonprez’s “Double Take”.

After six successful years, the 2009 festival, which will take place in Barcelona from May 21 to May 31, will explore the dialogue and intersections between video art and other arts disciplines such as dance, film, music and literature.

Loop continues with its three-part structure – Festival, Fair and Panels – that fills Barcelona with projects ranging from the latest works by acclaimed artists to innovative pieces by up-and-coming artists, as well as recovering emblematic works from video art history and presenting them to a wide audience.

 The program will include presentations by Stuart Comer [2] (Film Curator at the Tate Modern, London), Patricia Sandretto (director of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo per l’Arte de Turín) and the artists Aernnout Mik [3] and Harun Farocki [4], among others [5]. Also women are amongst these “others”, for example, quite provoking Annika Larsson [6] will be showing her work Dolls (2008 ) at PAVELLÓ MIES VAN DER ROHE [7]

Meanwhile, the section set aside for universities is set to expand this year to include projects by students from 27 educational centres from over a dozen countries around the world. [5]

The Fair will take place on May 28, 29 and 30. Once again, the Hotel Catalonia Ramblas will host the event, and in the privacy of its rooms more than forty galleries will present the works of international artists. [5]
