Antitube takes over Oeil de Poisson for a night to celebrate the creative possibilities of video.

 To celebrate 25 years of  Oeil de Poisson, a contemporary art production and gallery space, Antitube is screening a series of videos by artists who have left a permanent mark on their medium. From a portrait of Nam June Païk, founder of video art, we will trace the medium’s development over the decades, especially in Canada. Also a chance to examine what is happening in video art today, and where it fits into the current contemporary art world.

Friday, September 17, 2010, 8 p.m.

At the main gallery, Oeil de Poisson.

580 côte d'Abraham, Quebec City (Coopérative Méduse)
