About Single Channel
Single Channel is a festival that
screens video art and short film by 15–20 emerging and under-represented
artists. The festival provides the context for single channel video work and
short film to be screened outside of the gallery space in a more suitable
context. Single Channel offers uninterrupted and undisturbed viewing and
listening experiences to come to full fruition—acknowledging the exceptionality
of video art and short film by presenting them on a large screen. Participants
are selected through a free open call.
Single Channel will
be screened in a theater off-site of NURTUREart in New York City. Additional
screenings may also take place in professionally equipped indoor or outdoor
theaters. Single Channel is collaboratively curated by NURTUREart staff and
