REWIND Shanghai

CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland

Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum

17 December 2016 – 15 January 2017




Curated by Adam Lockhart & Cooper Gallery, DJCAD

Featuring work by: David Critchley, Stephen Partridge, David Hall, Judith Goddard, Elaine Shemilt, George Barber.

Curated by Cooper Gallery DJCAD, University of Dundee in collaboration with Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum and organised in partnership with the British Council, Phase Two of CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland focuses on the history, development and current conditions of artists’ moving image works to further explore the distinctiveness of contemporary art made in Scotland, its grass-roots spirit and its keen debates with the social and political dimensions of art and culture.

Phase Two of CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland grasps the restless energies of now by means of two contrasting takes on the moving image; REWIND and >>FFWD.

Crashing in and out of focus, cutting and editing time the moving image is the aesthetic medium of the contemporary. Yet as a medium it holds more than just the present moment, its play of film strips and pixels is marked by radical histories. Excavating this radical history encapsulated in seminal artists’ video works from the 1970’s and 80’s REWIND provides an in-depth historical perspective with which to grasp the condition of the ‘contemporary’ as a moving image falling in and out of history. In contrast, >>FFWD seizes the ‘contemporary’ in its full immediacy and impact. Choreographed as a four-week rolling programme of moving image works from Scotland, >>FFWD illuminates a visual lexicon of now.

Drawn from the significant national AHRC research project led by scholars at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, REWIND is a critical and historical counter-point to the contemporary moving image works presented in >>FFWD.Sampling the visual languages and formal innovations developed by video artists working during the 1970’s and 80’s, REWIND provides a telling account of how the image culture of the ‘contemporary’ is saturated with citations, quotations and references from its near past.

Doppelgänger Redux

Visions in the Nunnery

Nunnery Gallery, Bow Arts, London

Friday 21 October 2016, 6pm




Curated by Laura Leuzzi and Adam Lockhart

At the 2016 edition of ‘Visions in the Nunnery’ at Bow Arts (London), British video pioneer Elaine Shemilt re-enactacted live for the first time her seminal video performance Doppelgänger (1979-1981). Doppelgänger was recovered during the AHRC funded research project REWIND (DJCAD, University of Dundee), led by Prof Stephen Partridge, in 2012.

Doppelgänger is one of the only two surviving videos of Shemilt’s early experimentation with the medium. Shemilt employed video as a tool for introspection by manipulating her image, her face and her body. In Doppelgänger, Shemilt created a phantasmal double of herself exploring key feminist themes such as identity, sexuality, duality, women’s role in society and the status of professional women artists.

After three decades, Shemilt re-enacted, reactivated and reacted to the piece, sourcing from research materials from her own archive, and explored a new performative version of these key feminist issues.

NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL PLURALISM!

British Artists' Film Video and Study Collection

Lecture Theatre E002, Studio Theatre and Lethaby Gallery Central Saint Martins, Granary Building, London N1C 4AA


Thursday 19th March 2015 http://www.studycollection.org.uk/



The British Artists' Film Video and Study Collection at Central St Martin's, University of the Arts London, in conjunction with REWIND will be hosting a symposium titled NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL PLURALISM!

This one-day symposium and screening event, followed by the launch of the newly installed‪ REWIND Videotheque ‬at the British Artists’ Film and Video Study Collection, is presented as part of Central Saint Martins’s Strangelove Moving Image Festival.

The 1970s and 1980s is a period sometimes characterised as marking a transition from modernist medium specificity to more diverse pluralistic forms of engagement in artists’ film and video in the UK. This symposium and screening event will trace the practice and exhibition of these decades. It will range through the diverse practices of the 1970s, and the politicized early 1980s, with a focus onThe New Pluralism (Tate 1986), which sought to survey work from first five years of that decade. It also hopes to consider how notions of pluralism may be applied to artists’ moving image practice and exhibition in the 21st Century, in its many contemporary forms and contexts.

The day will include presentations by Stephen Partridge (University of Dundee), Patti Gaal-Holmes, and Sean Cubitt (Goldsmiths College), who along with CSM students from MRes Art: Moving Image, have also curated special screening programmes of rarely seen works of British Video Art and Experimental Film from the 1970s and '80s, including a screening of the newly remastered Five Films by David Hall and Tony Sinden (1972/3)

Lost and Found: Video and Installation Works 1976-2010

Streetlevel Photoworks, Trongate 103, Glasgow, G1 5HD

16th April - 30th May 2010


Lost and Found is an exhibition which will reconstruct some early video installations from 2 key events in Glasgow in the 70s and 80s: ‘Video – towards Defining an Aesthetic’ (Third Eye Centre, 1976) and EventSpace 1 (Transmission, 1986). Presented in collaboration with the REWIND project in Dundee, it includes works by Tony Sinden, Stephen Partridge, Stephen Littman, Pictorial Heroes, Zoe Redman and Kevin Atherton.

In the early days of video art, technological advancements were providing new opportunities for its development. The Videowall was a powerful new tool for the progression of the installational ideas of video art as a whole at the time. At Transmission in 1986 this was tested for the first time and then followed up at the first Video Positive Festival in 1989.

Kill Your Timid Notion 2010

Dundee Contemporary Arts

26-28th Feb 2010


As part of KYTN, Rewind has curated Kevin Atherton's 'Video Times' (1984) piece to coincide with the the festival's theme of 'non-art'.

Conceived of as a dual publication, video cassette and booklet, to be presented as an installation. The content of the videotape is the artist watching television. Illuminated by the flickering glow of the TV set the artist as TV viewer earnestly peers out of the screen whilst simultaneously balancing a cup of tea and a chocolate eclair on his lap. The printed booklet, which parodies a weekly TV guide, humorously brings the piece full circle by providing a detailed second by second guide to his actions.

DVD Launch & Performance of In Two Minds by Kevin Atherton

Stills, 23 Cockburn Street, Edinburgh EH1 1BP

Thursday 22 October 7pm Free


In Two Minds is a two monitor installation first exhibited in the Serpentine Gallery, London in 1978. This work consisted of Atherton on one video monitor asking questions of himself on the other monitor. The questions, typically of that time, largely address the nature of the piece itself. At the time of making the piece he had no intention of using it beyond the Serpentine show, the rough and ready state of the black and white tapes attest to this. However, the 'open' or 'incomplete' nature of the work allows him to 're-enter' it and create a new live version, where as a 58 year old man he can answer questions put to him by his 27 year old former self.


The REWIND + PLAY DVD, being launched at this event, presents a selection of key works from the first decade of artist's video practice in the UK. From early conceptual experiments exploring the parameters of the medium to works dealing with media culture and television this collection explores the range and diversity of the first years of video as new media. Produced in collaboration with LUX.

Scratch Video

Dundee Contemporary Arts, Cinema 2

Tues 1st April 2008, 6pm, £3


Streetlevel Photoworks, Trongate, Glasgow

16th - 21st March 2009

A screening of a series of videos from the ‚'Scratch Video' genre which was prevalent in the 1980s and has generally been forgotten about in contemporary culture. This genre was the first to use samples of video and mix them with sampled music and sound, leading into the dance music generation of the early 1990s. The works that will be shown are some of the best examples of this work from British artists.

These works use as their source, extracts from archive footage, news bulletins, old feature films and TV footage. They allude to socio-political and contemporary events such as the Cold War and Thatcher's Britain. Some of the issues raised are still relevant today.

Artists featured: George Barber/Kim Flitcroft & Sandra Goldbacher/Jeffery Hinton/The Duvet Brothers/John Scarlett-Davis/John Maybury/Gorilla Tapes/Akiko Hada & Holger Hiller/Chris Meigh-Andrews/Nick Cope.
