Publisher's description: Part of the "Documents" series, this volume explores the history, theory and practice of exhibiting artists' cinema, video installations and advertising films, focusing on the domains of performance and of the "expanded arts." Together with its companion volume, Exhibiting the Moving Image, the book offers case studies of "exhibitions," understood as events whose singularities emerge through the problematics they raise, toward the formation and redefinition of larger "exhibitionary complexes." The intention is to sketch alternative archaeologies of film exhibitions and complicate their histories as indexed either to the black box or to the white cube. Instead, Cinema in the Expanded Field maps situations of cross-pollination and hybridization, as well as exclusions between these devices, while accounting for the singularity -- resulting from the relationship between the aesthetic domain, technical apparatuses, discourses and audiences in their spatial settings -- of each of the events studied.
Indexing: Western, International (Western Style) — Post-1945 — Video/Film/Performance, Criticism/Theory
