Video jockeys (or VJs) are working visual artists who create, curate, and improvise videos for live events and performances—particularly those that involve music in some way. There are many different ways to approach this hybrid art form; some VJs incorporate other visual arts in their work
Video jockeys have become integral to the clubbing and festival scene, where they might create videos that enhance the DJ’s playlist or shoot and manipulate video live as a form of performance. VJs might also create video experiences to support an artist’s concert tour, a play or piece of performance art, a contemporary staging of a ballet or opera, a fashion show, or other events. In addition, they might display work in a gallery or other fine art setting.
