Random Acts: Artist Interventions into Broadcast

Random Acts: Artist Interventions into Broadcast
Friday 26th October 2012
11am - 5pm

Produced in collaboration with Channel 4, this forum will explore how television can bridge new relationships between socially engaged audiences, curators, creative producers and broadcasters.

Using Channel 4's arts strand Random Acts as the starting point we will ask, what is the future for TV as a shared space? How should artists use the medium? What should TV aim to be in the age of the Internet?

The forum will celebrate the Random Acts commissions (including 25 new films curated and co-commissioned by FACT) and discuss new models of broadcast and their dissemination in our increasingly networked culture.

Speakers include Channel 4’s Commissioning Editor for Arts, Tabitha Jackson; American performance and installation artist Marisa Olson; Chip Lord, co-founder of Ant Farm; and John Hill, of the groundbreaking collective Lucky PDF.

Artists Jeremy Bailey and Roney Fraser Munro will perform interventions during the event.
