MExIndex Standards and guidelines

The vision for MExIndex is to create a platform that encourages the discovery of visual arts-based and experimental moving image work by Irish and Ireland-based artists in the form of an index that is both searchable and sustainable To achieve this it is vital to ensure that the information accumulated about these works is documented in a consistent and transparent way. This has been done by creating and employing a set of guidelines that helps to decide what needs to be documented and how.

Shared Themes and Contexts

It is aimed at those wishing to select works for exhibition or screenings from this ever growing body of visual artists' moving images.
