What is BYOTV?

March 19- April 27th, The Video Gentlemen present BYOTV, offering a six-week season of special reports engaged with the technocultural turnover from analog to digital airwaves. Transmitted from within the New American Art Union, a variety of interdisciplinary artworks, live presentations, and free-form forays within the ether will provide inquisitive constellations around topics including e-waste, surveillance, haunted media and media archeology.

Low-wattage transmissions emanate from an array of re-configured electronic detritus distributed around the gallery. Telecommunications, and the distance implicit in its operation is countered by a physical proximity prescribed by the limited range of the BYOTV transmissions. Visitors are encouraged to “bring their own TV,” or borrow one from the gallery, intercepting transmissions from their immediate airspace.Scrutinizing the premise of obsolescence, BYOTV tunes into an alternative agenda, encouraging new modes of cultural production, collaboration and exchange.
