Curator Jamie Hahn states that “Still/Moving is an exhibition offering a historical perspective between still and moving images by showing a progression between analog film, digital video, electronic lens-based media and new media technologies. From still-capture, using a camera to record and freeze movement, to a moving sequence of images recorded with analog film and digital video methods, the artists make tangible the seemingly mysterious and sometimes misunderstood art that can be defined as New Media.”

Still/Moving, Framing New Media will feature video, projected works, installations, and printed materials. Truly a variety of visual experiences for every visitor.

The CVA Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Thursday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

This exhibit is free and open to the public and has been brought to you with support from the Ohio Arts Council.
