DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH

Diamonds in the Rough was a video program of newly commissioned works by seven artists coordinated by Nadine Christensen and Paul Sloan. Presented in a lounge environment, Diamonds in the Rough focussed upon the drive for narrative in both the production and reception of a work, with each artist employing conventional dramatic elements — a character, a musical score, or sequence of shots — in an interpretive game situated between art, cinema, rock ‘n’ roll and vaudeville.
