About Town, presents an exhibition of international video art in the Southside district, showcasing a wide variety of free night-screenings by artists from the UK and abroad, in unusual urban spaces.
New commissions inspired by their location, alongside films from Ikon’s recent programme, explore everyday city life.
The focal point in this exhibition is the contemporary interpretation of present-day culture through representations of the landscape. The works shown in Out There, make clear how we look at the landscape, how the definition of a landscape through technique and media is stretched and how we use the landscape as metaphor for current issues, be they social, political or aesthetic.
