'a clever way to summarize the exhibitions and events of an unorthodox space the Centre of Attention Magazine surveys (the gallery's) activities including performances and interviews...More concerned with ideas than production, the video is a spin on the home movie: an intimate rough-around-the-edges glimpse at an imaginative, resourceful enterprise.'
