Artists’ Television Access is a San Francisco-based, artist-run, non-profit organization that cultivates and promotes culturally-aware, underground media and experimental art. We provide an accessible screening venue and gallery for the presentation of programmed and guest-curated screenings, exhibitions, performances, workshops and events. We believe in fostering a supportive community for the exhibition of innovative art and the exchange of non-conformist ideas.
San Francisco premieres of new work plus some older favorites. T. S. Eliot’s words meet their visual match plus the poetry of solitary nature. Views of everyday surroundings and a library of books waiting to be read. Christo’s Central Park curtains and an airport made geometric. The program includes Christina Battle’s To Reveal the Fourteen Windows; Minyong Jang’sThe Breath; Jon Beacham’s What I Saw on the Periphery: A film in Eight Parts;Richard Mitchell’s Burnt and In Series, Ver. 2; Kai-Ting Chuong’s Intimations;Sharon Wasden’s Intention/Intension; Won-Tae Seo’s SFO; Tsien-Chu Hsu’sReflect; and Janis Lipzin’s The Bladderwort Document.
