FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FUGITIVE PROJECTS PRESENTS: FUGITIVE VIDEO PROJECT 2009-FESTIVAL AT HARMONY LANDING
An evening of artist film and video will happen in the great outdoors at the Harmony Landing.
Nashville, TN, 2009– Fugitive Projects presents the second Fugitive Video Project (2009) at Harmony Landing, in Pegram, Tennessee. This spring, more than 80, one-minute videos by nationally and internationally known artists as well as young, emerging artists will be screened under the stars. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 for the festival. Cabin and bunkhouse rentals as well as camping areas will be available. Festival visitors are encouraged to bring their own seating or blankets for more comfortable viewing. Saturday’s program will start around 7pm and Harmony Landing gates open at 4pm.
Participating artists represent all regions of the United States, France, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, Cyprus, Austria, Brazil and England. Participating artists include faculty from schools such as UCLA and The Art Institute of Chicago, auteur filmmakers like Laurel Nakadate and Dominic DeJoseph, Whitney Biennial Participants, Berlin Biennial Participants, Toronto and Sundance Film Festival Participants. Many artists have received Creative Capital Grants, Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grants, Eyebeam Senior Fellowships, and are collected by MOMA and The Whitney, and exhibit at some of the most respected galleries and museums in Europe and the North America.
Accomplished curators and artists from across the world have chosen the videos and films in the Fugitive Video Project 2009 including artist/curators Brent Stewart (Nashville), Matt Freedman (New York), Bert Rodriguez (Miami), Daniel Canty (Montreal) and Eliane Rutishauser (Zurich). Each artist’s video is 60 seconds in length or less. The works’ themes include everything from commercial culture to digitally created abstraction. In addition to the video artists on the roster, participants hail from diverse artistic backgrounds, including documentary and feature filmmaking, painting, computer programming, and sculpture/installation art.
Fugitive Video Project 2009 is a rare opportunity to see new, progressive projective artworks in a rural atmosphere. Situated on 70 acres in Pegram, Tennessee, Harmony Landing provides a pastoral backdrop for this international showing of artists’ moving images. The environment allows for viewers to come and go more freely than with a traditional cinema setting, creating a relaxed, social environment for viewing the films, videos and new media works by some of today’s most talented artists.
Visitors are encouraged to come early to enjoy the 70-acre grounds, including self-guided, walking tours and views of the Harpeth River. Food and drinks will not be provided, but grills will be available. Due to the variety of subject matter, which sometimes includes adult themes, some works may not be suitable for children; consequently, parents are asked to use their own discretion.
In case of rain the festival will be moved to the barn at Harmony Landing. For information on cabins and camping, please contact Alva Herbert at (615) 662.2649 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the festival, go to fugitiveprojects.com. A list of curators and artists is currently on the web site as well as other information about Fugitive Projects.

Our last video compilation screened in Dublin and Mantua, Ireland: Basel, Switzerland: Banff, Canada: Cairo, Egypt: and several venues across The U.S.We expect that with the help of our curators and participants we will be able to expand the breadth of this second effort.
Fugitive Video Project 2009 is our endeavor to assemble and disseminate a collection of video works representing diverse regions and concerns in contemporary media.We hope to introduce audiences to a broad array of creative directions and the nuanced associations created through artist initiative and community.
This video compilation will premiere at an opening night party at Harmony Landing, a 70-acre farm outside of downtown Nashville. A touring version of the program will be culled from the festival entries to create a touring collection.This collection will be determined by The Board of Fugitive Projects.These determinations will be made to ensure the highest quality and a reasonable duration for the touring collection.
