Panel Discussion: "Videofreex: A Foundation for Participatory Art and Social Engagement."
Panelists: Videofreex Parry Teasdale and Skip Blumberg; Galen Joseph-Hunter, Wave Farm; Moderator: Andrew Ingall, Guest Curator, Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television
Artists are increasingly turning to community-based organizing and as part of their practice. Alongside the Videofreex, artists and producers discuss Lanesville TV as a model for civic engagement and opportunities past and present for creative placemaking and revitalization. Panelists will share examples of participatory projects that fall on the spectrum between those designed and scripted by artists and those rooted in dialogue collaborative projects, as well as projects generated collectively with participants.
Student Union Building Rm. 62/63, SUNY New Paltz

Wednesday, March 25, 6:30 pm
Screening and Discussion: Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) will host a panel and screening in conjunction with Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television, organized by Andrew Ingall. This event will highlight the bold inter-disciplinary nature of the early video collective's projects, with a special focus on Videofreex founding member David Cort, who edited several of his key video works at EAI in the 1970s. Selections of Cort's video work, representing his use of video as an interactive tool for electronic imaging exploration, will provide a catalyst for the panel discussion. Panelists under consideration include original Videofreex member Davidson Gigliotti, artist, Cort collaborator Shalom Gorewitz, and LoVid, a media art duo who represent a new generation of artists who have been influenced by the interdisciplinary practices of the Videofreex. The panel will be co-moderated by Ingall and EAI's Director of Distribution, Rebecca Cleman.
