IV Inter-American Biennial of Video Art
The Biennial is organized by the Cultural Center of the Inter-American Development Bank, with the objective to stimulate the creative use of video, and encourage the Latin American and Caribbean artists to use their abilities to formulate original and imaginative proposals with the help of video technology. The exhibition presents the awarded videos at the IV Inter-American Biennial of Video art.

First Prize of US$4,000 to the video “Common Words” by Martín Mejía from Colombia, a dialogue work in which interchanged words are inserted with images to establish a reflection on the fundamental topics of existence and survival. Second Prize of US$3,000 to the video “Les terra’s di nadie” (No-one’s Lands) by César Augusto Meneghetti from Brazil, which is a conceptual, dense and powerful piece conceived around social and political events that invade the current reality. Third Prize of US$2,000 to the video “Dos veces adiós” (Two Good-Byes) by Iván Nicolás Grum from Chile, a piece that takes advantage of film history to tell once again a love story that takes place anywhere on Earth. Honorable Mention to the video “Aspiro al rol” (I Aspire to the Role) by Verónica Riedel from Guatemala and to the video “Cuando calienta el sol” (When the Sun Warms Up) by Christian Maciá de la Orta of Mexico. Special Mention to the video “Noche” (Night) by Mariana Sosnowski from Argentina.

25 videos were selected from among 201 works submitted from 15 countries and Puerto Rico. The Video exhibition was inaugurated in 2008, at the IDB Cultural Center Art Gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibition will be presented in 2009 at the Istituto Italo-Latinoamericano in Rome, and in October of 2009 at Santafe de Bogota’s International Film Festival.
This exhibition is organized in conjunction with the Cultural Center of the Inter-American Development Bank.
