Brand New Moving Image Program

This Fall, ArtHelsinki in collaboration with Moving Image co-founders and directors Murat Orozobekov and Edward Winkleman, launched a special video and film program. Galleries were invited to submit up to 3 "moving image" works with those selected presented at the fair (Sept. 7-11, 2016).

We were thrilled to have been selected by Moving Image's Winkleman and Orozobekov as the platform of choice for supporting open call submissions and for powering the moving image portion of the ArtHelsinki fair.  Learn more about how Niio supported this entire process.

Professional Tools: The Submission Process

Cobbled Together Solution Supporting an open call for for moving image artwork comes with many challenges.  Immense file sizes and multiple rich formats make open calls challenging for curators. Often times, they receive works in many different ways (USB, Gmail, Dropbox, FTP site) making the management and review of submissions a very time consuming, non-centralized process.

New Work Flow Niio supports all rich file formats (4K to VR) up to 250GB thus enabling all participant to submit to a single platform enabling curators and event organizers to manage submissions from one single location.  In addition, when ready they can view the submission as intended by the artist in the highest possible quality, thanks to Niio's 4K/60fps player.  Gone are the days of watching low res, compressed previews on non-intended platforms such as youtube or vimeo.

Professional Tools: Powering the Fair

New Work Flow For Display With all of the artwork submissions neatly organized in their Niio account, the Moving Image team was able to easily plan and organize the show which featured a synchronized 90-minute video installation across 3 screens.

The Moving Image team opted to use our Niio ArtConsole (4k/60fps player) which they plugged directly into their 3 projectors. With the works pre-downloaded to the Niio ArtConsoles, they didn't require Wifi for display.   During the show, the Moving Image team was able to control the manage the show via their Niio Remote Apps.

Access to Niio

If you're interested in using the Niio platform, its professional tools, ArtPlayer (4k/60fps) and Remote Control App for your event,  please request an invitation to our Private Beta.

Winter Art Fairs

Niio in NYC

This winter we were in NYC for Armory week. It was a great opportunity to meet many of the gallerists and curators supporting and promoting "moving image" works.  More importantly, it enabled us to continue to learn about the extensive challenges that artists, gallerists, curators, fair organizers and museums/institutions face while trying to manage, transfer ownership and of course display digital works as intended by the creator - - all topics we're passionate about.

We spotted videos and web based works throughout the fairs from The Armory Show and the Moving Image Art Fair to the very fun Spring Break Art Show, which explored curators' interpretations of ⌘COPY⌘PASTE.
