Millennium Film Journal No. 65: April Publication

We’ve noticed an emphasis on architecture in artists’ moving image recently. Several of the texts in MFJ NO. 65 will look at the many facets of this tendency. The editorial team (Angela Ferraiolo, Josh Guilford, Anita Spooner, Kenneth White and myself, Grahame Weinbren) are currently preparing for an April publication. We are thrilled with the range of interests, approaches and the sparkling quality of the texts in this collection.

The issue includes reviews of individual works or full-scale exhibitions by David Claerbout, Eve Fowler, Pipilotti Rist, Marianna Simnett, substantial interviews with Jesse McLean on her recent work and Coleen Fitzgibbon on the artists’ video collective Co-Lab. Michael Betancourt contributes his latest study of the ‘glitch,’ and Joel Neville Anderson his research on the legendary alternative television studio DCTV, started in the 60s and still going strong.

It is an diverse but focused collection, and we can’t wait to see it in print in April.
