Thinking about our program in the form of a program, the Logan Center Gallery becomes a TV studio, hosting visionary conversations about contexts and possibilities in anticipation of the public launch of the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts.
A range of formats will be explored, from intimate exchanges between long-time dialogue partners to topical conversations with a larger group of colleagues, as well as a speak-easy for one night only. For the most part, there will be no studio audience, as priority is given to achieving a quality recording for a larger broadcast audience. Edited episodes will be made public via broadcast outlets such as CAN TV, YouTube, and the Logan Center’s website.
In developing this highly constructed tele-visual environment, there is a sense that conversation has the potential to be shaped and practiced as a form of art. Furthermore, this recording endeavor highlights the vital, if often overlooked, role of oral traditions in shaping vision and culture.
Emphasizing collective construction and the spirit of improvisation, TELEVISIONISM is a chance to reflect and to ask fundamental questions that will shape the Logan Center Exhibitions program in the future.
