Video screening: MAES (Vitória/ES, Brazil)

Next weekend some of my video pieces will be projected on the facade of MAES, a leading arts venue in Vitória, the capital city of Espírito Santo State in Brazil. The screenings are part of a 24-hour art and culture festival that will kick off on Saturday afternoon and will go on until Sunday. It's going to be wild!

 The New Yorker has published an in-depth interview with Trecartin, confirming his increasing reputation in the art world. Below is one of his first video tapes, A Family Finds Entertainment.
