Public Access Art TV Show Day

televisionstudio.jpg

Today, I will be posting videos from various art-related public access TV shows in the United States from the past 30 years or so. The shows profiled in these posts were selected because they share a similar fun, lively and subversive spirit. Public access television has been an important forum for artistic experimentation, allowing artists to respond to television's conventions within the medium itself. The videos shown here comprise part of that story.

This grouping is not an exhaustive survey, so readers, if there are shows that you would like to share, please post links or videos in the comments section.
