About the exhibition
Windows into Worlds was an audiovisual exhibition and installation that showcased new connections between performing arts and digitl video. It included original artistic research from Dr Ben Spatz's Judaica project alongside contemporary performance-based films by VestAndPage (Germany) and Studio Matejka (Poland), as well as a growing network of performers exploring video lab methods. These videos run alongside an "Open Lab" where the public was invited to explore audiovisual creation.
The Windows into Worlds exhibition Market Gallery welcomed more than 200 visitors. There was an opening event with vocalist and composer Odeya Nini on Tuesday 3 December and a featured artist talk with performers VestAndPage at the University of Huddersfield campus on Wednesday 11 December. The exhibition was supported by the School of Music, Humanities and Media and the School of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield.
