Imagining the TV Studio: Experimental Histories and Futures. An illustrated lecture by Maeve Connolly
Wednesday 20th August, 3-5pm

Presented by BBC ARTS and LUX SCOTLAND

Viewing Theatre, BBC Scotland

40 Pacific Quay, Glasgow, G51 1DA

In recent years, the TV studio has figured prominently in contemporary art, whether used as a shooting location, repurposed as an exhibition space or restaged within the gallery, in works by Gerard Byrne, Celine Condorelli, Michelle Deignan and Olivia Plender, among others. Maeve Connolly’s talk examines why and how the meaning of the TV studio has changed since the 1970s, addressing its initial importance as a space of imagined experimentation, in the work of artists such as Peter Donebauer, John Hoppy Hopkins, Otto Piene, Aldo Tambellini and Stan VanDerBeek, and also exploring its future as a potential context and setting for collaboration.
