The result of extensive archival research and remastering of key historical material, this project revisits the 1981 exhibition Video Art from Australia
presented in Venice and subsequently toured through Australia (before disappearing in transit). Works from the original exhibition have been supplemented by some key additions, creating a unique insight into early video practice in Australia.
Stephen Jones is an Australian video artist, curator and electronic engineer. He is author of Synthetics: Aspects of Art and Technology in Australia, 1956 – 1975
