an multi-site international artist-share incorporating a series of contemporary video and new media art screenings and artist-orientated workshops

Wave after wave the ocean reveals itself through both flow and time. Describing video we often turn to terms which reflect the forms and motions that occur within water; depth, purity, distortion, modulation, tearing, streaming, and snow. Similarly the collection and screening of video art and digital media is measured, streamed, blocked, and pooled. In this series 6 curators in 5 different locations select from a shared artist pool revealing the varying ways in which the moving digital image permeates our daily experience in a diverse series of screenings.

WADE IN bridges physical geographies with the flow of the digital image. Participating curators included Eva Isleifsdottir (Reykjavik), Chris Clarke (Cork), Michelle Jacques (Victoria), Zach Pearl (Toronto), and Mary MacDonald/Jason Penney (St. John’s). The WADE IN artist-share screening series was accompanied by 6 professional development workshops in November 2014 at Eastern Edge Gallery for emerging artists or those looking to connect with national and international opportunities, improving their entrepreneurial and business marketing skills in Newfoundland and Labrador.
