Live to Tape: Ecstatic Static

@ Links Hall

3111 N Western Ave

Opening Thursday, May 21st, from 7PM - 10PM

Static, glitches, signals lost and reconstituted. This one is for the heads—gorgeous, scary moments of rapturous rupture for bathing brains and adventurous eyes.

Alejandro T. Acierto performs embodied glitch—a powerful, visceral consideration of the multiracial body in normative society. Experimental Half Hour livestreams a telecast from Los Angeles. Philippe Blanchard and Peter Rahul rush us into the first-person. Jennifer Juniper Stratford gets corporeally hypnagogic. Vaudeosignal’s celestial noise brings a blizzard to spring. Caitlin Denny and Nicole Ginelli dig deeper into the ambience while Tyrone Davies and Eric Watts reveal the rest of the smash-your-TV story. Finally, Josh Rios, Brandon Alvendia and Anthony Romero break apart the talk show and build it back anew.

Links Hall is proud to present Live to Tape Artist Television Festival, a week-long celebration of artist television performances and screenings curated by Jesse Malmed. From May 18th to 24th, the festival will showcase video and performance works by more than sixty artists—spanning four decades—that take television as object, as concept, as antagonist, as material, as form, as inspiration. Some of the most exciting artists working on the edges of broadcast, video art, comedy and performance are brought together for a week of wild and wonky televisionary delights, offering a glimpse into the futures and pasts of artist television.
