Video Art Student Showcase

By 20 August 2021No Comments

Video Art Student Showcase is a short film program of short films created by students in the Visual Arts at Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. Twenty-six students of the Advanced Video Art class self-selected the films in the showcase. 

Led by Prof. Donna Szoke, the class focused on building on creative, technical, and critical skills for video art production, post-production, and critical evaluation. Students were introduced to a variety of forms and approaches to video art and its context in contemporary art discourse. This project also allowed mentoring artists to virtually visit students, giving them presentations on their practices as Canadian video artists. 

The project was funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Innovative Work-Integrated Learning Initiative (IWIL) and Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada’s Innovation Hub (iHub) and supported by the Niagara Artists Centre.

This program is suitable for mature audiences and contains difficult, sensitive or potentially triggering subject matter. 

Niagara Artists Centre is located on the ancestral lands of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples.

This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement
