by Bruce Ferguson

1984 Ottawa International Festival of Video Art, 1984, p. 1

Ottawa: SAW Gallery, 1984

In his introduction to his curatorial project, Bruce Ferguson speaks to some of the common themes and similarities between the video art being produced on an international scale. This is done to suggest that while the festival uses national labels to help categorize the works, the nationalities are not as central to the works themselves.
