Public Access/ Open Networks

  • BRIC Gallery

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 ProjectsJaime DavidovichGlenn O’BrienNam June PaikPaper Tiger TV, and Tony RamosContemporary artist projects by: Natalie BookchinE.S.P. TVJayson MussonJon Rubin, and URe:AD Press (Shani Peters and Sharita Towne).

The exhibition will host a live to tape event with E.S.P. TV on April 15th inside gallery exhibition space. The event will be broadcast on Bric Media. Full program TBA

Curated by Jenny Gerow, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art

E.S.P. TV: WORK

Pioneer Works | 159 Pioneer Street | Brooklyn, NY 11231
Hours: Wednesday – Sunday from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
www.pioneerworks.org

Pioneer Works is pleased to present WORK, E.S.P. TV’s first institutional solo exhibition in the United States. Directed by Victoria Keddie and Scott Kiernan, E.S.P. TV is best known for their live television tapings that feature experimental broadcast collaborations with underground poets, musicians, and artists via their mobile television studio.

For WORK, E.S.P. TV makes Pioneer Works’ office staff and environment the subject of a six-week performative, televisual installation by relocating the organization’s second-floor, open-plan office to the first-floor’s main exhibition space. Surrounded by a de-centralized control room, the office doubles as both a dynamic sculptural set — painted partly in chroma blue and featuring movable walls, among other features — and the actual site for the staff’s five-day workweek. The staff’s “daily grind” will be mixed live, on-site, with custom video effects and commercial interruptions. Far from peddling in the sensational tropes of reality TV, WORK instead turns banal, day-to-day office routines and patterns — the movement of a chair, a co-worker getting coffee — into the improbable, playful content of a serial program to be broadcast weekly on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. E.S.P. TV worked closely with curator David Everitt Howe to envision this social experiment and exhibition, which responds to the building’s unique environment and tight-knit, collective office culture.

Work was curated by David Everitt Howe, Curator/Editor at Pioneer Works.

Media Archiving Workshop: Migration and Preservation from Analog to Digital

Taught by:
E.S.P. TV, Athena Christa Holbrook, Kit Fitzgerald, Liz Flyntz
Pioneer Works, 159 Pioneer St., Brooklyn NY

ENROLL HERE

The Present is the Form of All Life: The Time Capsules of Ant Farm and LST is an exhibition tracing the evolution of the time capsule from a “a container storing a selection of objects chosen as being typical of the present time, buried for discovery in the future” to a digital archive, where media formats from the past are only as discoverable as current tech compatibility allows. In this workshop, we work with media preservation archivists to discuss how art and media archives can be preserved and obsolescence avoided. A hands-on transfer station will be set up and supervised where all willing participants can sign up to learn how to digitally transfer material on a range of analog media formats.

This workshop will be facilitated by E.S.P. TV, a project directed and operated by Victoria Keddie and Scott Kiernan, that hybridizes technologies old and new, contemporary and obsolete, through the creation and broadcast of experimental television from their customized mobile-tv-studio van. For this workshop, they will be joined by Athena Christa Holbrook, Collection Specialist in Media & Performance Art at The Museum of Modern Art, artist Kit Fitzgerald, and curator Liz Flyntz to facilitate a day of media rescue!

Participants can bring tape-based video formats such as:
(S)/ VHS
Betacam SP
DVCAM
Mini DV

And analog audio formats such as:
¼” reel to reel
Cassette tapes
LPs

Participants will be asked to outline the type, format, and duration of the media that they hope to transfer, and sign a waiver in the case that material is compromised. Participants will also be required to bring their own USB hard drive to store their updated files. They will leave with a hand printed manual for reference to transfer their own material.
