Programming Director

Neven Lochhead is an artist working with video, sound and performance. He draws from the traditions of durational moving image practices, the employment of text-on-screen in early video art, and the compositional strategies of minimal music to generate states of viewing and listening that sustain the potential for commitment and collectivity. In 2016, Lochhead completed his MFA in Art Video from Syracuse University. Residencies include the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine (2015) and Tacita Dean's Artist Research Laboratory in Como, Italy (2014). Recent activity includes a collaborative video project It Filled Our Minds Completely (2018) with artist and writer Gary Kibbins, and a commissioned video for Modern Fuel's Syphon publication about artist-run culture (2017). Since January 2017, he has worked as Director of Programming at SAW Video Media Art Centre in Ottawa where he curates media art exhibitions and performances through the Knot Project Space.
