Julie's Weekend.

Myers, Julie (2001) Julie's Weekend. [Show/Exhibition]


Julie's Weekend was a Digital film and web site exhibited as a video projection and web site at ZKM, Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany in The Future Cinema Show. It was a collaborative project initiated, written, edited and produced by Myers. The method was one of artistic collaboration in which Myers invited 5 participants from Prague, Sydney, London, New York, Florence, Jakarta and Hong Kong to respond to her set of instructions posted on the project web site.

Julie's Weekend investigated the role of the World Wide Web as a tool to generate creative exchange. Myers used on-line technology to expand models of collaboration, and extend the debate surrounding the politics of authorship, subjectivity and cultural difference. In particular it made a contribution to models of collaboration and interactivity.

Julie's Weekend was commissioned by The Arts Council of England and DA2 (a digital funding agency) in Bristol.

It was also exhibited at: ‘A History of Web Cinema', Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art - Helsinki – 02; Hong Kong Biennial – 02; DA2/Watershed - Bristol – 02

Artists screenings and talks were given at Hong Kong Biennale (2002); Sierre School of Art, Switzerland (2002); First Site Gallery, Colchester (2002); British Film Institute, London (2002); The Academy of Fine Art, Prague (2004)

500 DVD copies were produced and distributed through DA2.

The total budget for Julie's Weekend funded by The Arts Council of England and DA2 was £9,000.

As a result of Julie's Weekend Myers was awarded a small AHRC grant (£5,000) which enabled her to develop two future projects – Love and Adventure (2003) and Elsewhere In Between (2006). These projects were funded by ACE and Signals Media Arts, Colchester, FACT, Liverpool, NESTA and supported by British Telecom.
