SAAH alumnus (MFA 2013) and Links Hall Artistic Associate Jesse Malmed will debut Live to Tape Artist Television Festival, a week-long showcase of moving image, performances, and more, at Links Hall this May.
About Live to Tape
Seven days of live talk shows, historical and contemporary moving image works and commissioned performances, television-as object, as concept, as antagonist, as material, as form, as inspiration-is unscrambled and reconceived. By turns hilarious and heartfelt, wonky and wild, Live to Tape gives us a glimpse into the futures and pasts of artist television. Over the course of the festival, Live to Tape will present a wide variety of performances and screenings organized into eight different programs: Aesthletics, The Sitcom Set, Dial-A-Soap, Ecstatic Static, No News, Make Me Psychic, Cable Excess and Sketch Book. Each program will consist of a video screening followed by a talk show. Click here for more information on the festival schedule.
