A River Waits Reply

Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, Silent (video still), 2017.

A River Waits Reply
An online collaboration between 7 contemporary art venues
October 13–November 30, 2020


A screening series developed by seven international arts organizations, A River Waits Reply presents moving-image works from around the world as a poetic reply to this unprecedented year. It is a year that has invited new modes of exchange at a distance, and a long overdue reckoning with deep social and political inequity that calls for new forms of solidarity. All seven institutions will simultaneously host each video on their websites for the duration of one week, with the series as a whole extending over seven weeks. Each work has been selected by a partner organisation as a response to the videos that preceded it, producing a cascading sequence and a winding river of thought, interpreted through the aesthetic and social values of their respective cultural context.

The title of the series is borrowed from a poem by Emily Dickinson.
