This ongoing survey will showcase experiments undertaken by artists and visionary producers beginning in the late 1960s at public television stations like WGBH in Boston, KQED in San Francisco, and WNET in New York. Rather than a video art survey, or a series of films that feature television imagery or the manipulation of CRT monitors, this project will showcase work created by artists explicitly for over-the-air broadcast on television to a public audience. We're thrilled to partner with Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) for this very special variety show program, presented in conjunction with the exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, "Broadcasting: EAI at ICA," on view February 2-March 25, 2018. This program will unearth some of the best, most bizarre, and most entertaining works that artists have broadcast on television, from experiments with purchased airtime to unannounced broadcast interventions. Expect surprises, oddities, and the unclassifiable. The program will feature work by: Ernie Kovacs Lynn Hershman Leeson Chris Burden Stan Douglas Dara Birnbaum and many more! "Broadcasting: EAI at ICA" brings together an intergenerational group of artists whose time-based artworks are produced in concert with their means of circulation, from the democratic platform of public access television to the instantaneity of social media. Drawing primarily from the collection of EAI, which was founded in New York in 1971 with a mission to distribute and preserve video and media art work, "Broadcasting" will focus on how artists exploit the act of broadcast as a subject, a means of intervention, and as a form of participation. The exhibition and related programming will encourage feedback and process over static reception, with public discussions staged within the gallery and broadcast beyond the physical walls of the museum. Artists in the exhibition include Tony Cokes, Ulysses Jenkins, JODI, Shigeko Kubota, Robert Beck, and Kristin Lucas. "Broadcasting: EAI at ICA," is organized by curators Alex Klein, the Dorothy & Stephen R. Weber (CHE'60) Curator at ICA, and Rebecca Cleman, Director of Distribution at EAI. For more information about the exhibit visit: icaphila.org/ Curated and hosted by EAI's Rebecca Cleman and Anthology's Ava Tews.
