Event: Random Acts: Artist Interventions into Broadcast
Location: Picturehouse at FACT, Liverpool, Screen 2
Date and time: Friday 26 Oct 2012, 11:00
This event does not have allocated seating. You may sit where you like.
This forum celebrates the Random Acts series of commissions - including new commissions from FACT for the strand - and opens up a dialogue about the future of television as a shared space that has the potential to bridge new relationships between socially engaged audiences, curators, creative producers, and broadcasters. Random Acts is a short form daily arts strand on Channel 4, late nights. It is television as art, rather than television about art. Created by established and emerging talent, without presenters, ignoring the clichés of the usual arts TV.

 Using Random Acts as its starting point, this day long event will ask what is the future for TV as a shared space? How should artists use the medium? What should TV aim to be in the age of the Internet? How can television bridge new relationships between socially engaged audiences, curators, creative producers and broadcasters? 

The forum will celebrate the Random Acts commissions (including 25 new films curated and co-commissioned by FACT and Jacqui Davies) and discuss new models of broadcast and their dissemination in our increasingly networked culture.

 Channel 4's Commissioning Editor for Arts, Tabitha Jackson, who is responsible for all arts programming on C4 and More4 as well as any cross platform and transmedia arts projects joins us to consider the future. She will discuss the potential impacts and opportunities for artist interventions in broadcasting with Director of FACT Mike Stubbs, and Lucky PDF, an artist collective from South East London. 

International speakers include Chip Lord, who will be discussing histories of artist intervention with artist John Hill, of the ground breaking collective Lucky PDF. Chip Lord was a co-founder of Ant Farm, one of the most important and radical media collectives to come out of the United States. Artist performances will take place including Jeremy Bailey's The Future of Television, a 'tele-presence augmented reality performance', and Roney Fraser Munro, who will be intervening throughout the day with a series of alternative personae that seek to create a DIY and punk aesthetic for the future of television. 

Produced by FACT, and online with ArtPlayer TV, in partnership with Channel 4, Arts Council England and the Liverpool Biennial
