The weirdest, wildest and most innovative video art around is coming to town as part of the third Channels Festival. Taking over a number of venues around Melbourne including ACMI, The Substation in Newport and the Centre for Contemporary Photography, this year's festival will consist of 14 unique events, and will draw on the talents of more than 90 artists from around Australia and the world.
Standouts on the program include Video Visions, a two-and-a-half hour screening of curated video art culled from more than 470 submissions; Flygirl, a solo green-screen dance installation from Sydney-based artist Caroline Garcia; and FutureClown, an "alternative viewing" of Donald Trump's inauguration from LA artist Rachel Mason.
The festival will also feature a number of commissions, including new works from Melbourne-based South Sudanese artist Atong Atem and Wakka Wakka and Yargel artist Hannah Brontë.
