The new century is marked by a final acceptance by the gallery system and art market that the moving image is a viable art medium. Following the demise of other centres for screening artists' film, such as the Lux Centre and the Video Positive festivals, film and video has come to increasingly take its place in the context of the gallery space. As new generations of artists turn to the moving image medium, a spate of recent retrospective exhibitions such as X Screen and Shoot Shoot Shoot indicate that it's histories are by no means forgotten.
