David Fodel and Janet Feder on Curating BMoCA's MediaLive 2014

When David Fodel was invited to help launch MediaLive two years ago, one of his goals for the performance-, workshop- and talk-filled symposium at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art was to showcase artists who are exploring new forms of live audiovisual work. This year's three-day festival, which runs from November 14 through November 16 at the museum and CU-Boulder's ATLAS Black Box Theater, was co-curated by local guitarist Janet Feder; it will feature artists from around the globe, including the London-based Light Surgeons, Chicago-based Nick Briz, Moscow-based VTOL and many more. In advance of MediaLive 2014, we caught up with Fodel and Feder to talk about curating the festival, some of the artists performing at it and how its scope has grown over the last two years.
