The Miami New Media Festival has selected “Civility vs. Violence” as a curatorial thesis for video art and site-specific installations for the XVII edition. Art projects around this topic will remind us how important is education and community to embrace peace. This edition will showcase artworks indoors as a traditional art exhibition, and outdoors as public projections, which is an alternative and effective way to exhibit video art.
Artist Xavier Cortada’s “I Rebuke You” video is an Official Selection for the 2022 Miami New Media Festival. This socially engaged art piece was created and shared on January 6th, 2021 as the artist’s immediate response to the violence that partisan leaders (and their riotous mob) perpetrated upon the American people and their democracy. In the ensuing months we have come to better understand how complicit our political leaders were in this effort.
