OPENING RECEPTION: March 22, 2017 | 7-9PM

ON VIEW THROUGH: MAY 7, 2017

CURATED BY: Jenny Gerow, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art

 


In the late 1960s, visual artists experimenting with the new medium of video saw the potential of public access television to act as an open and uncensored platform for the creation and dissemination of their work. This exhibition will present both key and lesser-known figures who worked in the public-access arena, as well as contemporary artists experimenting with the democratic potential of new media platforms on the Internet. BRIC’s own public access channels will be continuously aired in the gallery space, and a stage in the center of the gallery will act as a set for the production of new programming by BRIC’s community producers.

Historic and recent programming by: Collaborative Projects, Jaime DavidovichGlenn O’Brien, Nam June Paik, Paper Tiger TV, and Tony Ramos. Contemporary artist projects by: Natalie BookchinE.S.P. TV, Jayson Musson, Jon Rubin, and URe:AD Press (Shani Peters and Sharita Towne).

Venue Information:

The 3,000 square-foot Gallery in BRIC House has soaring 18-foot ceilings that permit major exhibitions focusing on emerging and mid-career artists and curators.
