ABOUT SPARK VIDEO:
With the implementation of a monthly video series in 2001, Spark Contemporary Art Space emerged as the leading venue for Video Art in Syracuse, New York. In 2003, Spark expanded, adding a second venue in Beacon, New York, and soon expanded again, opening a third venue in London, Canada. For the current programming year, each monthly event will consist of one SPARK VIDEO INTERNATIONAL program and one program of community-based video known as SPARK VIDEO LOCAL .The result is a monthly series that supports local exhibition, stimulates community through International exhibition and curatorial collaboration, and provides a new audience for artists living all over the world.
