MVAS: Index A presents an international assortment of contemporary videos that embody a plethora of local and global video art histories. This exhibition favors border crossing, multiplicity and hybridity, eschewing the constraints of thematic screenings and binary paradigms. Referring to a multitude of cannons and pointing out to a plurality of practices, these works are indexical of a fractured past that reveals the heterogeneity of the present. This is the first of many entries that The Melbourne Video Art Society will facilitate to strengthen a dialogue in Melbourne surrounding video art histories.
