DOUBLE HELIX: Art and the Moving Image

Curated by Julianne Pierce for the 2009 Adelaide Film Festival .

A one day symposium where artists, curators and critics from throughout Australia and around discussed the fast-evolving ways that the art world and the moving image are coalescing, connecting, and colliding. The sessions framed a series of debates around issues such as the ways that work being done in a gallery context might be of interest to more main stream audio-visual media, and the ways that moving image practices, technologies and distribution structures might affect the way visual artists develop their work.
