We’re All Videofreex a success

The event We’re All Videofreex at the School of Visual Arts drew artists and mediaphiles from way back and just now, listening to stories and media philosophies. And, of course, watching video. The theater held 70 to 80 audience members for most of the panels, and more than 100 for the screening. Attendees milled and reminisced and schemed at a bustling reception following the symposium.

The symposium ended with a 60-minute compilation of Videofreex work. The following day, members of the Videofreex partnership met, all together for the first time in many years. The Videofreex Tumblr, created by SVA’s ultra event organizer Allison Hewitt Ward, contains a collection of panelist profiles and more videos. SVA will post recordings of the proceedings on iTunes U in two to four weeks.
