TRANSMISSIONS Series 3
Programmed by Anne Duffau, Tai Shani and Hana Noorali
March - October 2021
"In the past year, we have learned that all forms of community are vital in providing mechanisms to support each other through this precarious time"
TRANSMISSIONS is an online platform that commissions artists to share their work within a classic DIY TV show format. The programme was initiated in the wake of the emerging pandemic by Anne Duffau, Tai Shani and Hana Noorali as a collective means of creative and financial support for the many precarious artists, writers and thinkers who had exhibitions, opportunities and subsequent fees cancelled. It is further produced by Lori E. Allen with Mika Lapid as associate producer.
After a year of mass isolation and an uncertain future ahead, community support is more important than ever. Back for a third season, TRANSMISSIONS will present 6 new episodes in which artists are given full creative control. Each episode will be broadcast via TRANSMISSIONS.tv from March to October 2021. The series will launch with Episode 1 on Wednesday 17 March 2021 at 9.00pm GMT and again on Friday 19 March 2021 at 10am GMT. This will be a group show featuring; Ron Athey, JJ Chan, Jamie Crewe, Valie Export, Ioanna Gerakidi, Will Harris, Caspar Heinemann, Ayesha Tan Jones, Martha Rosler, Julietta Singh, Peter Spanjer and boychild & Wu Tsang. Watch it live on https://www.transmissions.tv/.
