I HEAR A NEW WORLD
“Art and nothing but art! It is the great means of making life possible, the great seduction to life, the great stimulant of life.”
By exploring two media, leveraging the fusion of different artistic languages that are closer to the avant‐garde of cinema and music, artists and musicians who were interested in innovation and experimentation were able to influence each other, breaking barriers, and becoming part of popular culture in the second half of the 20th century.
Rock music went from radio, its initial broadcast medium, to artistic contexts, integrating increasingly autonomous and referential expressions. Filmmakers, painters and musicians worked and lived in proximity, always looking at other arts as a challenge, an opportunity to overcome their own limits, as a growth possibility. They invariably gave rise to new languages in which the results of artistic experiences coexisted, but that, over time, acquired a different status, actually influencing the way films and music were made, and also new ways of presenting them to an audience.
Stereo, the exhibition commissioned by the Curtas Metragens CRL that originated these films here presented, was set based in this historical assumption and the films/installations produced devises their own exploratory course within this concept as the product of total creative freedom. These films manage to be true to the original idea and suggest interesting paths and aesthetic choices. They also show complicity and a search for shared harmony between the members of each team of artists.
Stereo is the result of the work of 12 Portuguese artists who are also regulars of Curtas Vila do Conde Film Festival. They are musicians, artists and filmmakers, who teamed up in pairs and who have at least one thing in common: a personal and artistic career that already suggested an inclination for this type of artistic fusion, some of them with previous experience in working together and all with an extensive curriculum in Portugal and abroad.
