Conceptual artists Stephan Breuer and Charles de Meaux, along with Lea Marchetti, aim to extract video art from the world of museums and galleries and firmly place it in the public realm with new initiative in Paris. Launching on 14 October at Etoile Cinémas group cinema La Pagode, One Minute In Art will bring both major and emerging contemporary artists - Lawrence Weiner, Rashid Rana, Dominique Gonzales-Foerster, Iván Argote, Julien Prévieux and Enrique Ramírez among others - and their work closer to cinema-goers in the French capital. No title or credit will preamble the films, aiming to give audiences as ‘pure’ an experience as possible. ‘OMIA is about discovering and experiencing a new story of motion pictures,’ explains Marchetti, ‘a new experience for an audience used to a cinema which is subject to a quasi-permanent narrative constraint.’ Opening the year-long project will be Cosmic Horizon by Stephan Breuer, as seen here. Each film will be screened for two weeks in each theatre, offering eight weeks of broadcasting for each video.
