VideoARI brought together single-channel video works selected by artist-run-initiatives from across Australia and New Zealand. With a focus on artist-run-initiatives from outside of Melbourne, the exhibition operated as a platform through which the participating artist-run-initiatives could highlight a single video work from their region and present this within the Melbourne context. The works are displayed simultaneously across a dozen monitors, in a cacophony of video.
