N-Minutes Video Arts Festival

N-Minutes Video Art Festival is a public art project, which aims to promote video art among the wide audience and urban spaces. N-Minutes was founded in 2011, and it would be held every year during September to October in Shanghai. With various art activities including screening, mapping, audio-visual performance, exhibition and lecture, N- Minutes weaves video arts into urban life and interacts with the audience, enabling a new possibility of public art.

N-Minutes Video Art festival crée un événement interactif, un dialogue urbain entre vidéo et usagers multiples de l’espace public. L’objectif est de libérer l’art, de le faire sortir du musée, en l'invitant dans la rue en encourageant ainsi le grand public à participer à des activités artistiques, pour aboutir à une multiplication des fonctions des espaces de la ville et donner une place à l’art dans la vie quotidienne.
