LIVE TO TAPE
ARTIST TELEVISION FESTIVAL
MAY 18-24, 2015, LINKS HALL, CHICAGO
Seven days of Prime Time (new works), Reruns (historical works), one of a kind Talk Shows, psychedelic cartoons, cable excess, and ecstatic static. Since television’s inception, artists have been using and misusing it as material, as form, as inspiration and as antagonist. Live to Tape asks artists—performers, writers, moving image makers—to produce, reproduce and explode television for a live studio audience. Watch as a new generation channels and resets notions of the surf, the stream and the idiot box. They catch phrases and dodge signals, radicalizing and re-envisioning the frequencies.
