A+ Online Festival of Video Art

August 1 - September 12

A+ Works of Art is pleased to launch our inaugural Online Festival of Video Art, featuring curators Au Sow Yee, Marc Gloede, Ray Langenbach and Trương Quế Chi, and artists Chong Kim Chiew, Chumpon Apisuk, Đỗ Văn Hoàng, Ho Rui An, Kray Chen, Lucy Davis, Orawan Arunrak, Noor Abed, Pekka Niskanen, Phạm Ngọc Lân, Thảo Nguyên Phan, Posak Jodian, Quỳnh Đông, Saša Rajšić, Tan Zi Hao, Trương Công Tùng and Wu Chi-Yu.

The Online Festival follows Back to Art, an exhibition which marked the reopening of the A+ Gallery in June, after an easing of the Movement Control Order in Malaysia.

Along with Back to Art, the Online Festival also aims to remind us that artworkers across the board — artists, curators, administrators, designers and so on — have still been working through the pandemic, and they need support.

As the artworld shifts to more presentations online, we thought that one way to explore these possibilities would be through a focus on Video Art. An online festival of Video Art may arguably offer a more engaged experience in comparison to the now ubiquitous online viewing rooms of painting, sculpture and other work usually meant to be appreciated in person and in a gallery setting. Moreover, Video Art is a practice that could use much more backing from collectors, especially in Southeast Asia.

Rather than curate the Festival with an overall theme, we decided to invite four curators, each of whom we entrusted to present their own compelling and personal selections of artworks (see the forthcoming website for their separate curatorial statements). We also decided to include artists among our invited curators, and are showcasing their artworks as well in the Festival.

SCHEDULE:

On Saturday, 1 August, the A+ Online Festival of Video Art launches with a selection from A+, featuring works by Ho Rui An, Orawan Arunrak, Chong Kim Chiew, Tan Zi Hao, Trương Quế Chi, Ray Langenbach and Au Sow Yee.

Then on 8 August, Au Sow Yee presents her selection, featuring works by Posak Jodian and Wu Chi-Yu.

On 15 August, Ray Langenbach presents his selection, featuring works by Chumpon Apisuk, Lucy Davis, Noor Abed, Pekka Niskanen and Saša Rajšić.

On 22 August, Trương Quế Chi presents her selection, featuring works by Đỗ Văn Hoàng, Trương Công Tùng, Quỳnh Đông, Phạm Ngọc Lân and Thảo Nguyên Phan.

And finally, on 29 August, Marc Gloede presents his selection, featuring four works by Kray Chen.
