PLAY Semana de Videoarte is an exhibition of international scope, which seeks to expand the boundaries of the legitimate contemporary uses of image, sound and word. It takes place annually as a competitive exhibition of selected works by a prestigious international jury. In each edition, activities for the formation and promotion of videocreation are articulated, such as production workshops, talks / meetings with and between artists.
This project has been started since 2012 and it has six consecutive editions. The annual exhibit, and activities are realized in Corrientes city (Argentina), at the Cultural Center of Universidad Nacional del Nordeste (UNNE).
We highlight the emergence of audiovisual production in the region, we consider it important to devise a platform for the exhibition of works that involve the use of audiovisual tools, conceiving video art as a democratic practice within the field of contemporary art and achieving, in this sense, a space of experimentation as a disruptive form to the models, formats and institutionalized genres of the audiovisual.
PLAY works in conjunction with the project ARCA Archive and Digital Database of Argentine Video that makes available an online database of Argentine video art.
