Title: Variable Economies

Variable Economies provides the theme for the programme of works for
Multichannel 2010. The theme implies the current global economic downturn,
decreased availability of resources influenced by human intervention in the
natural environment, shifts in national and global political emphasis, and
formally in relation to the making of artist film and video.  For
Multichannel 2010 artists are invited to submit works for selection that
touch upon the themes of the programme in terms of the use of the
medium/material of film and video.

Multichannel is a screening programme of artists film and video, organised
and curated by ArtSway and SCAN in ArtSway?s galleries. The programme, which
previously took place at ArtSway in 2007 and 2008, will once again feature
both established practitioners, as well as ground breaking video works by
artists from across the UK, and around the world. This year we are pleased
to announce that Animate Projects will partner on Multichannel.
