Announcing “The Moving Image Award”
In conjunction with their media partner Gallerist, Moving Image, the Contemporary Video Art Fair, announced today the creation of a new award to be presented October 11, 2012, the opening day of this year’s London fair. The Moving Image Award funds the acquisition by Tate of artwork exhibited at the fair, as selected by Tate’s Curator of Film, Stuart Comer.
Gallerist, the host of the official online catalog for Moving Image (www.movingimage.gallerist.com), established the award to raise awareness of the importance of incorporating video and film into the permanent collections of major art institutions. The award was inspired by San Francisco collectors Pamela and Richard Kramlich, who have supported contemporary artists working in video, film, and new media through their private collection and through the New Art Trust, a non-profit organization they founded to advance the collection, preservation, exhibition, and understanding of technology-based art forms, particularly at the Trust’s three supported organizations, Tate, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
