Clockwise from top left: Movement by Yukihiro Taguchi (Japan/Germany) as selected by Mami Kataoka (Japan); Flatland by Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain (Brazil) as selected by Ana Paula Cohen (Brazil); ShortWave/LongWave by Vartan Avakian (Lebanon) as selected by Jack Persekian (Palestine); Berkeley's Island by Guy Ben-Ner (Israel) as selected by Mai Abu ElDahab (Egypt/Belgium)  “Project 35” is an exhibition of video works selected by 35 international curators in commemoration of exhibition producer Independent Curators International's (ICI) 35th year. Each of the curators was invited to select one artist’s video that they think is important for contemporary art audiences across the globe.

“Project 35” showcases a new exhibition concept for ICI, with an eclectic compilation of works that reveal the global reach that video has achieved as a contemporary art medium. The exhibition will include 35 videos on 16 screens that reveal the diversity of approaches artists are now taking to the medium. The artists featured use various animations techniques and borrow from the language of cinema, performance, and YouTube to produce work that weaves between documentary and fiction. The subject matter ranges from reinterpretations of philosophical propositions to uprisings and protests in South Africa, propaganda news broadcasts in China, and emerging youth culture in Ho Chi Minh City. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
