The 7th International Video Poetry Festival took place in November in Athens. Three of my films were screened - Blue Flash Flash, Coyote Wedding and Glitter.
A review of the event is now on the Institute for Experimental Arts website and I am pleased and delighted that they have included Glitter among their outstanding video poems of the year.
Atticus Review has been featuring videopoetry for a number of years and at the end of last year launched its first videopoetry contest. It was judged by Marie Craven who selected four winners that were published recently.
Marie has also written about the experience of judging in an article on the Moving Poems site. And I'm delighted to say she chose my film 'Glitter' as one of the runners-up of sorts that she has featured in the article.
This possibility under wraps for about 6 months... it's been tantalizing waiting for confirmation. But Robert Good and I are now hugely proud to announce that 'A New Dictionary of Art' is now available in Tate Modern.
Thank you to Alison for spotting it out on display and for capturing the images.
Today I pledged support to this wonderful project. Dyana Gravina is the founder of Procreate Project and she and Paola Lucente are tireless in building up projects and support for mothers in art. I have been lucky to have worked with them previously and exhibited my work at Leftovers last year, as well as being part of their online shop.
This is what they are aiming for:
"Mother House is the world's first affordable artists studio model with integrated childcare, where children are welcomed into the work space. Help us open the next studio in London!"
