LA Freewaves' 8th Celebration of Experimental Media Arts

Permeates All of Los Angeles

 

Los Angeles, CA - LA Freewaves, the most extensive media arts advocate in the country, launches TV or NOT TV, its 8th Celebration of Experimental Media Arts, throughout Los Angeles during the entire month of November 2002. Over the past 13 years LA Freewaves has become an unparalleled Southern California phenomenon, presenting artists who are inventing the future of art, culture and media.

This year’s festival presents over 300 films, videos and new media works in panel discussions, performance events, exhibitions, outdoor community screenings and television broadcasts. Most events and exhibits are free of charge, with approximately three percent requiring nominal fees for entrance or parking. Daily, from November 1st – 30th, the festival will infuse 65 venues, television, the web and 3 video billboards with the newest, most innovative media art from around the world. 350 artists will warp, twist and redefine the distances between daily life experience and televised reality, presenting puzzling questions and dynamic alternatives to corporate-filtered entertainment and alarmist, biased news reporting.

On Friday, November 1st TV or NOT TV officially kicks off with a film and video screening at Cal Arts, a month-long South American exhibit at Iturralde Gallery on La Brea and a full evening of events in Chinatown featuring multiple gallery openings in and around Chung King Road, multi-media art at internet cafes, public address system infiltrations, and large scale street projections. Once you’ve filled your mind, head over to The Grand Star to shake your booty at the infamous club Firecracker. And to think, there’s another 29 days in the month of November filled with diverse TV or NOT TV festival programming.

TV or not TV? In addition to visiting the 65 museums, art galleries, night clubs, colleges and universities, film theatres, art centers, karaoke bars and Internet cafes all over Los Angeles you can also turn on your television and tune in to KCET 28 at 11:00pm every Sunday night throughout November or LA Channel 36 every Monday night at 10:00pm. Also, Pasadena Channel 56 will run 2-hour blocks in rotation of TV or NOT TV programming.

And of course, a great portion of the festival happens online as well. Remember, this IS a media arts festival. Watch www.freewaves.org for comprehensive video streaming, calendar of events, artists’ bios and links, archives of past LA Freewaves’ festivals, their extensive media resource tools and complete festival details.

LA Freewaves is Southern California's preeminent advocate for independent, experimental, noncommercial and under-represented media. Its ground-breaking biennial festivals, low-cost workshops, curriculum materials and comprehensive web site serve as an energetic, multicultural, multimedia arts network and an optimistic model for art in the electronic age.

LA Freewaves is funded by The Rockefeller Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, National Endowment for the Arts, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, California Arts Council, California Community Foundation and Pasadena Art Alliance.
