Channels video art festival - calls for submissions

Channels will be hosting a series of exhibitions, screenings, forums and events in September 2015. Submissions are now open to all Australian and international artists who work with video. Selected works will be curated into our festival screening program in Melbourne, Australia and our international satellite events.

Our first artist-led festival in 2013 was a great success showcasing over 120 artists from Australia and around the world. We received over 900 videos from all over the world and after weeks of watching them all and discussing with our selection panel, we created a series of curated screening events across Melbourne including the most popular Video Visions, a 2-hour long screening event at the cinema of Australian Centre for Moving Image (ACMI), and Rooftop Transmissions for NGV Melbourne Now.

Bangkok - found sounds and art

some links on Bangkok sound art and digital art and other interesting blogs / media

art
BAM - Bangkok Art Map - BAM is a printed art map available at galleries, hotels, art-cafes and various other places around the city. there seems to be a different issue each month. I found a copy of the 05.2011 version at the Kathmandu Photo Gallery off Silom Rd in Bangrak. the website has art listings and information also and is definitely worth checking out - you can even download a pdf version of the current BAM if you don't find one on the soi

Kathmandu Photo Gallery - there's books, art prints, and a gallery upstairs. it's a great old pre-war building, painted pale green - which reminds me of the smaller rooms in the old RSL halls in Brisbane in the 1970s where we did ballet classes - even the same pale green paint on the wall boards - it's very fresh and colourful. owned by well-known Thai photographer Manit Sriwanichpoom and artist/filmaker Ing K.
