Abstract

Urban Screening is a public video exhibition that debuted at the Perth Cultural Centre during Architecture Week Western Australia 2014.

There is a broad range of architectural thought and production under way in Perth, activity from a network of people and groups who have a strong influence on the form, nature and character of places we live in. Much of this activity is invisible to those not directly involved, and the products are often those of the background, forming the framework of the life of the city. The Urban Screening reveals the excitement, plurality and richness of ideas about living and working in the city which are being explored and produced by the architecture profession, artists, students, academia, and government. This inclusive view of architectural work includes public and private buildings as built, unbuilt, and speculative, video art, videos documenting art, art production and performance, urban design, landscape, infrastructure, design process material, advocacy and policy development.

The 2014 programme was exhibited on two large screens, with films chosen to suit each one; the Northbridge Piazza Super Screen* is a venue with an audience who will sit to watch longer, more informative pieces. The Perth Cultural Centre Screen, situated in an arts precinct allows for more risk taking, and calls for shorter films with maximum visual engagement for the walk through traffic from nearby transit hubs.
