Maeve Connolly and Colin Perry will discuss artists engagement with broadcasting. The talk explores the current lockdown situation in which artists increasingly work online to broadcast their works live, or create temporary web-based exhibitions. The talk situates these activities in terms of recent and historical examples of artists’ broadcasting, video art, film and moving image practices. The session reflects on opportunities that are created by this moment, in terms of viewing, reception and artistic agency.
