Enduring media art collective whose warehouse space hosts multimedia exhibitions, live performances and regular events
The Birmingham legacy of Vivid is a long and storied one. This media art collective was formed in 1992 to carry on the legacy of the historic Birmingham Film and Video Workshop by producing interdisciplinary work for both its home city and the world. It closed in 2012 after a loss of funding, but this proved a mere bump in the road, and Vivid lives on at Digbeth’s Minerva Works in Fazeley Street as a streamlined, but still risk-taking, version of the original masterminded by Yasmeen Baig-Clifford.
Vivid Projects has taken over a warehouse along the Warwick Bar canalside, using this momentous space to offer multimedia exhibitions, live performance and discussions. With past events having examined the history of slide-tape presentations, and regular nights being held by Birmingham collective SOUNDKitchen, Vivid has as much interest in the medium as the message and remains one of the most important art collectives in the city.
