e-flux video rental is an art project conceived by Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda, comprising a free video rental, a public screening room, and a film and video archive that is constantly growing.
This collection of almost 950 works of film and video art has been assembled in collaboration with over 130 international artists, curators and critics. Originally started in New York in 2004, at a small storefront space located at 53 Ludlow Street, EVR has been presented in Amsterdam, Berlin, Boston, Frankfurt, Seoul, Istanbul, Canary Islands, Austin Texas, Budapest, Antwerp, Paris, Lyon, and Miami. The project will stop traveling at the end of 2010.
For each of its new locations, EVR expands its inventory to include new selections by local curators / artists / writers. In keeping with this, Frida Carazzato and Maria Garzia, curators in this edition hosted and supported by the Fondazione Giuliani, have invited Adrienne Drake, Ania Jagiello, Cristiana Perrella, Cesare Pietroiusti e Francesco Stocchi to select additional videos for the collection.
In occasion of its presentation in Rome, a special supplement was published about the project, conceived by Frida Carazzato and Maria Garzia in collaboration with cura.magazine.
