#OTVReRuns explores intersectional web TV platform OTV – Open Television’s rich back catalogue of programs from cycles past, enhanced by the point-of-view of the creators. #OTVReruns is a director’s cut with a playful twist. A quiet nod to VH1’s Pop-Up Video, the shorts are annotated with commentary and facts from behind-the-scenes.

This first edition of #OTVReruns highlights Border’d: A Web Series, United States of Aliens, and FOBia Series. This livestream is powered by 6018North and Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

OTV – Open Television
OTV | Open Television is a non-profit platform for intersectional television. We incubate artists that commercial television networks and art institutions do not develop consistently: artists who identify with multiple identities marginalized by the market and society. OTV experiments with alternative ways to develop, produce, and exhibit art and television. Our programs center artistic expression, intersectionality, Chicago and digital networking.

At 6018North, we challenge what art is, whom it’s for, and where and how it’s created. Founded in May 2011, 6018North is an artist-centered, sustainable, nonprofit platform and venue for innovative art and culture. Located in a dilapidated mansion, at 6018 North Kenmore in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood, 6018 North encourages artists to collaborate and reconfigure its intimate space. This intimacy allows artists and audiences to connect in transformative ways. At home and away in other non-traditional spaces, 6018North’s site-specific exhibitions and events include artists performing, creating installations, and directing communal engagement events.
