Good Stories Well Told: Video Art for Young Audiences

4 June – 31 July, 1993

Created especially for viewing by children and youth, this unique exhibition includes 38 tapes produced by media artists, often in collaboration with young people, arranged into three groups for differing ages levels. The stories in these videos take place all over the world, from Brooklyn to Beijing, and in the imaginary places of dreams and fantasies. Some are presented in familiar forms lives narrative and comedy, educational film, rap music video, documentary and animation. Others employ more inventive, hybrid forms. While the videos can be enjoyed individually for their own sakes, they also present an ideal opportunity for encouraging a critical look at TV in the context of media literacy. Great for school and family visits! Organized and circulated by Independent Curators Incorporated, New York. Display at the Dalhousie Art Gallery funded by the Canada Council.
