REWIND @ Stills

Stills, 23 Cockburn Street, Edinburgh EH1 1BP
6th August 2009 - 25th October 2009

REWIND at Stills was a specially curated exhibition, for the Edinburgh Arts Festival, of seminal works from the formative years of British video art. Digitally remastered and archived by REWIND, this showcase of pioneering artworks from the 1970s and 1980s was organised in partnership with Stills and exhibited in Stills’ public resource area. The videotheque style exhibition provided a unique opportunity to view the early years of a medium that has become a cultural mainstay in museums and galleries alike. In addition to the video collection, visitors were able to access information on all the artists and their work from an online resource, which includes interviews with the artists, critical texts, reviews and ephemera. REWIND Artists’ Video in the 70s and 80s is a research project based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee.
