Along with FIAC, Show Off and Slick, 2008 Art Fairs at the city of Light, VideoArtWorld and Frere Independent present, from the 24th to the 27th of October, the latest edition of the Digital & Video Art Fair: DiVA Paris 2008.

Strongly determined to premiere the most interesting new media contemporary art production, Ms. Macu Moran has been appointed as curator of this small but exquisite fair, hosted at one of the most outstanding Parisian venues: the KUBE Hotel.

The reasonable size of the fair has been carefully designed taking into consideration the especial nature of time-based art, allowing the visitors to properly appreciate each and all the artworks exhibited and enjoy with full attention this unique coreography for the senses.

Cura tor Macu Moran founded the VideoArtWorld network in 2007, soon becoming a leading website supporting the clarification of the new media art market that presents unique features to allow galleries connecting with curators and collectors simply and efficiently. The site will feature virtually the audiovisual works presented at the fair, widening access to international press, collectors and curators.

This special show will grow the wave of new collectors interested in the less speculative art medium, a field definitely full of treasures.

This edition Tribute is dedicated to Wolf Vostell. As part of this homage, some of his most representative audiovisual works will be projected and discussed subsequently in a panel with Rafael Vostell, Macu Moran and Alanna Lockward, who will also input a previous interview to another leading light on the field, Mr. Rene Block.

French auctioner Maitre Pierre Cornette de Saint Cyr will present the first auction sale exclusively commited to Video Art. It will take place on Monday October 27th at 2pm precisely. This sale does not intend to compete with auctions such as those usually presented by “La Maison de Ventes Pierre Cornette de Saint Cyr”, Christie's or Sotheby's. DiVA pretends to offer a friendly and more humble experience, knowing that this sale would allow collectors to find and acquire carefully selected artworks at fair market value.
