The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, announces selections for the 2015 EXPO VIDEO program, presented in partnership with Columbia College Chicago. Curated by writer, independent curator and Director of MOSTYN (Wales, United Kingdom) Alfredo Cramerotti, the program will feature more than 15 artists and filmmakers creating some of the most exciting and cutting-edge film, video and new media works chosen from the 140 participating galleries exhibiting at the fourth annual EXPO CHICAGO (Sept. 17 – 20, 2015).

In addition, Cramerotti has chosen two pieces of work from Columbia College Chicago students to be displayed alongside major international artists from leading galleries including Marianne Boesky Gallery, Bortolami, Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Corbett vs. Dempsey, Massimo De Carlo, Honor Fraser, Kavi Gupta, Hales Gallery / P.P.O.W, Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Lisson Gallery, Matthew Marks Gallery, David Nolan Gallery, rosenfeld porcini, Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, White Cube and David Zwirner as a part of this year’s program.

“Embedded within the contemporary art world’s strategies of making and display, the combination of moving image works on view makes this program a unique chance to experience visual culture today,” said Cramerotti. “These exceptional artists’ films and videos open up a new territory of cinematic experience, where the viewer is at the center of the work, and encounters something rarely accessible outside film festivals, exhibitions or specific surveys.”

Titled “Futuro Anteriore” (“Future Perfect”), this year’s program examines the apparent contradiction of this phrase indicating events, experiences and facts that are considered, but remain part of the future. Featuring neither straight experimental video art that anticipates future trends, nor short film that exists as part of a visual tradition, the quality and innovative strength of the works presented make them unique in many respects. The chosen works immerse viewers in stunning exteriors and intimate situations. Various cinema industry mechanisms and established genres are present in this program selection—from Hollywood glamour to the Lumière brothers—yet, a huge range of visual innovations and experimental artistic approaches are embedded within these works.

The works on view are presented in a variety of screening formats including four viewing stations designed by Studio Gang Architects. New this year, two dedicated screening rooms on the west end of Festival Halls A and B, as well as an interactive app for mobile iOS devices (downloadable for free from the iTunes store) will allow patrons to experience this fluid program in a versatile way. Whether through entering the screening rooms, standing in front of the pods, or holding a mobile device, the viewer will have the chance to travel in space and time.

Once again, a designated viewing station will feature the work of Columbia College Chicago student video work selected by Cramerotti.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
