A four-day video art event at Tate Modern Starr Auditorium and East Room, Friday 21 to Monday 24 September 2007.

Art Summer University is a four-day celebration of creative energy. It will present a cutting-edge programme of video works with international artists, curators and theorists.

Through a series of talks, screenings and presentations, this event will give audiences direct access to brand-new international video art and the artists’ view of contemporary art practices.
Tate is inviting 18 artists from around the world to come to London to premiere a new artwork, discuss their artistic approach and interact with the audience. The interested public, students, emerging artists and arts professionals will have the opportunity to meet established artists practicing internationally, to ask questions and explore the diversity of the video art form.

This event will promote exchange between international artists and the public in a uniquely stimulating and meaningful way. Over the course of four days, delegates will experience an increasingly deep engagement with video art, from presentations by specialists who contextualise the works of several artists to individual artists’ talks to intense one-to-one sessions.
