MUX: Asheville is a Video Art Festival created by video artists, art theorists, curators, & educators seeking to expand the field for new media and video art, easing the imbalance between artists and exhibition platforms.
MUX’s structure is derived from the term ‘multiplexing’ and operates as such: it allows for multiple data streams delivering varied signals to unite over a single channel. MUX offers a stereoscopic approach to curating new media that establishes perspectival depth through the formation of a body of work. Considering experimental works that explore, create, and challenge systems, modes of representation, and ideologies through the use of creative audio / video / performative language, MUX’s structurally conscious network subsumes geographic distances in exchange for a temporal omnipresence.
