Event Description

18th Street Arts Center is pleased to present an exhibition curated by EZTV’s Michael J. Masucci exploring the evolution of digital art in Los Angeles over two decades of recent history. EZTV, a pioneering video space founded in West Hollywood in 1979, has been part of the resident artist community at 18th Street Arts Center since 2000. The exhibition in the Atrium Gallery is a complement to the retrospective EZTV: Video Transfer on view at USC’sONE Archives Gallery and Museum through June 1, 2014. Hacking the Timeline v3.0: Digilantism and the LA Digital Art Movement (1985-2005) includes artists Victor Acevedo, Rebecca Allen, Dave Curlender and David Goodsell, Kate Johnson , Shelley Lake, Vibeke Sorensen, and Michael Wright. Many of these digital art pioneers were associatedwithEZTV in the early days of the collective and the artistic medium. In an era before personal computing, these artists imagined a future of ubiquitous connectivity that we now find commonplace. They developed a visual and technical language to articulate the relationships between live action and virtual imagery, and between classical influences and new visual forms. Los Angeles has been home to much of this transformative arts movement, conceptually as well as technologically. Many of the seminal collaboration projects realized by artists and scientists in tandem through EZTV have transformed the world that we take for granted today. The role that such trans-disciplinary collaboration played at universities, governmental, and industrial sites as well as at the independent artist studio level will be investigated through examination of the work of these seven artists and one collaborating scientist.
