Videokanava Online Gallery presents videos from emerging artists and filmmakers. The organisation was founded in Finland in 2014 and formed by a group of Tampere based contemporary artists. Every year a different curator selects video works for a themed exhibition from videos submitted. Every month Videokanava highlights one of the curated works by presenting it at an artist's solo exhibition in the Online Gallery. In addition, the live screenings are held in art galleries and other interesting spaces in Finland and abroad.
In 2017 Videokanava is participating in the international video festival and art project W:OW - We are One World. The videos curated will be seen in international video art festivals as a part of the The W:OW project and in Videokanava’s own screenings and in the Online Gallery during 2018. The purpose of the project is to activate artists to reflect the state of the world and humankind from the perspective of one's living habitat.
In 2016, renewed Videokanava published the open call for the exhibition season on the theme Borders. The selection of works was curated by the visual artist Sepideh Rahaa.
