Art Summer University               
   
Art Summer University is a four-day celebration of creative energy. It will present a cutting-edge programme of video works with international artists, curators and theorists. Through a series of talks, screenings and presentations, this event will give audiences direct access to brand-new international video art fresh from Venice, Documenta, Basel and Münster.
 
Tate is inviting 18 artists from around the world to come to London to premiere a new artwork, discuss their artistic approach and interact with the audience. The interested public, students, emerging artists and arts professionals will have the opportunity to meet established artists practicing internationally, to ask questions and explore the diversity of the video art form.
