Preview - Nanny Cam
Last summer The White Pube, an art criticism website and research project led by Gabrielle de la Puente and Zarina Muhammad, released an open call for videos made by people without a degree in Fine Art. A year on, the pair have selected videos by 20 artists for ‘Nanny Cam,’ to be shown at Basic Mountain in Edinburgh, The White Building in London and Bluecoat in Liverpool.
Ahead of the events, the curator's said: "Studio-based university art education is a privilege that legitimises the artist’s career but it is expensive, unnecessary, and institutional."
"‘Nanny Cam’ brings together films made by artists in their time working in retail, in the army, and bars. A few are unemployed, while one is a technician and another a nanny. A couple are alumni - but of Geography or Economics; or creative disciplines in which video is a peripheral outcome, such as Textiles or Architecture. All those involved have come to video through alternative epistemologies and cultures."
Nanny Cam will be screened at: Basic Mountain, Edinburgh, 12.30-3.30pm on 3 June.
The White Building, London, 6-9pm on 10 June.
Bluecoat, Liverpool, 4-6pm on 11 June
