Museum of Clouds

In October 2018, the Museum of Clouds project brought together a group of artists and curators from all over the world at the Tate Modern in London to explore the films, the contexts and the figures that connect a varied group of artists and film-makers who have been working over the last decade. The series of talks and screenings included work by Gabriel Abrantes, Basma Alsharif, Alexander Carver, Benjamin Crotty, Mati Diop, Beatrice Gibson, Shambhavi Kaul, Laida Lertxundi, Matías Piñeiro, Ben Rivers, Ben Russell, Daniel Schmidt, Ana Vaz and Phillip Warnell and was curated by Andrea Lissoni, Carly Whitefield and Raoul Klooker, with the cooperation of Garbiñe Ortega. The guest curators this time were Mark Peranson, Andréa Picard, Aily Nash, Natxo Checa, Garbiñe Ortega and María Palacios Cruz.

Museum of Clouds was always seen as a work in progress, porous and flexible; a travelling imaginary space to help us think about the landscape mapped out in recent years in a certain kind of film. This time, Museum of Clouds goes to Punto de Vista to deal with the work and curating practice of the people who shape this landscape, making film from programming.

This version of the project will involve several meetings between curators and public presentations to share and reflect together about matters concerning the differences in ways of working between art and film institutions and festivals, about how we built our audiences and how we guide them through our programming, how a community coalesces around a programme and also about creative, conceptual and semantic questions when it comes to approaching a series.

This time we will be honoured to welcome three great professionals in the field: Dennis Lim, director of programming at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York; Eva Sangiorgi, director of the Viennale (Vienna International Film Festival) and Edwin Carels, programmer for the international film festival Rotterdam.

Curated by Garbiñe Ortega and Tate Film (Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator International Art / Carly Whitefield, Assitant Curator, Film).

Edwin Carels

Edwin Carels is film curator and programmer for the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), among others. He has published various essays on visual arts, film and animation and works in teaching and research at the KASK / HoGent art school (University College Ghent - faculty of fine art). Carels is to make a programme as part of the Museum of Clouds initiative at Punto de Vista, the first travelling venue for this Tate Modern project which sets out to reflect on the different ways of working of art and film institutions and festivals.

Dennis Lim

Dennis Lim is director of programming at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, where he sits on the selection committees for the New York film festival and for New Directors/New Films, and supervises the annual repertoire and festival programming. Lim will share with our audience some of the curatorial projects in which he participates and their characteristics.

Eva Sangiorgi

The Italian Eva Sangiorgi has worked as a film programmer since 2004, and has extensive experience in Latin America and Mexico, where she founded FICUNAM (the national university of Mexico's international film festival) and ran it from 2011 to 2018. She is currently director of the Viennale (Vienna International Film Festival) and, as part of the Museum of Clouds initiative, she will talk with the public of Punto de Vista about his way of understanding his job.
