Whitney Kimball, Vox Populi's third AUX Curatorial Fellow, presents "Schmart World," a series of programming that celebrates and examines the rough and incandescent world of radical collective making.
For the sixth program of the "Schmart World" series, Whitney Kimball presents ESP TV: Live Broadcast of Experimental Performance from AUX. Since 2011, ESP TV has been broadcasting experimental performance and video to New Yorkers through the Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) public access television. Using arcane technologies like CRT warping effects, green screens, and lo-fi noise distortion, ESP TV presents a blaring contrast to TV's high-production value "Golden Age." Recent performers/collaborators have included Phamakon, Colab, Martha Wilson, and the Joshua Light Show; ESP TV lately shot four episodes at Iceland's Reykjavik Festival and produced a live Spanish-language performance of Robert Ashley's Perfect Lives for the Whitney Biennial.
ESP TV will live broadcast a range of experimental performances from the AUX Performance space including local and national acts TBD. For more information, please visit the Vox Populi website.
