AUSTRALIAN FILM COMMISSION AND BURNING THE INTERFACE

12 September 1996

The Australian Film Commission is proud to be a major supporter of the Burning the Interface exhibition hosted by Ngapartji Co-operative Multimedia Centre, developed by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and curated by Mike Leggett.
The support represents the Commission's ongoing commitment to the development and exhibition of multimedia works.
Burning the Interface has been supported at all stages by the Australian Film Commission, through research for the exhibition, curation, installation, publication of the catalogue and the national tour.
Ngapartji is the first leg of the tour which moves to Melbourne in October as part of the Experimenta Media Arts Festival and Interact Multimedia Expo 96. The exhibition will be part of the Perth Festival hosted by the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in February and then moves to the Brisbane Town Hall where the exhibition will be part of the eMedia multimedia event.
The AFC, with the support of Apple Computers, purchased the five computers used for the tour.

It is worth noting that out of the 10 Australian artists represented in BTI, eight have been financially supported by the AFC for either the exhibited or subsequent works. The AFC's New Image Research program began in 1989 and to date more than $1million has been provided to developers of multimedia products.

"The AFC has supported Burning the Interface as it is through exhibitions of this nature that the general public and the industry are afforded an opportunity to view the diversity of work being created nationally and internationally. Exhibitions provide opportunities for the general public to view works in this new art form and for the fledgling multimedia industry to see the conceptual and technical cutting edge the artists are exploring," says Kate Ingham Director, Industry & Cultural Development, Australian Film Commission.

"These events showcase the contribution the creative community can offer the multimedia industry, and inspire newcomers to explore the full potential the medium offers."
