LAST ON STOREFRONT TV:

 

JANUARY 18 — DREAM + BEING CLOSING PARTY

E.S.P. TV  


BEING: The Gameshow
E.S.P. TV confronts the idea to "Dream" through the repurposing of a TV game show. The game show phenomena is intrinsically tied to american television broadcasting and middle class domestic living.  Each generation of TV viewers had their own show dedicated to fantasy-turned-reality, presenting the material wealth of the middle class as attainable prizes. 

Contestants vie against each other for money, prizes, vacations, new lives. For our live taping event, contestants will be challenged on their knowledge of  domestic life in New York City, today. Yes, they live here, but do they really exist here? 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Storefront TV Studio events are free and open to the public. There is limited capacity within the studio and livestream is available at the Storefront Gallery. Programs are broadcasted live at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/storefront-tv.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After airing, the episodes are posted online at storefrontnews.org.


OCTOBER 15 — UNVEIL

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Box? 

Michael Young
Performance 1: Fear of Constraint is a performance enacting episodes from the 350-year love affair between architecture and drawing restraints from Desargues Theorem to Parametric Representation.


OCTOBER 22 — DISRUPT

E.S.P. TV
Presenting the second of 6 programs recorded in the Storefront TV Studio with Georgia (Brian Close as Justin Tripp), Cibo Matto (Hatori and Honda), and Matt Werth (Rvng records). Special guest movements by Maggie Lee and India Salvor Menuez. The space transforms to a living organism.

OCTOBER 27— QUESTION

E.S.P. TV presents "Just Desserts"
The third of 6 programs recorded in the Storefront TV Studio, E.S.P. TV presents a cooking show with Saffron Eclair and Beby Hi! montaging past and present celebrity cooking shows, product commercials, and cues in social etiquette under a bizarre canopy of the absurd. 

 

The show is produced for Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television (MNN), to be aired on Tuesday nights at 10PM on TW channel 67 . After airing, the episodes are posted online at storefrontnews.org.


NOVEMBER

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


NOVEMBER 13 — REACT

Perchance: A Talk Show of P's
Prem Krishnamurthy
This first program will feature Peter Rostovsky, artist, Guillermo E. Brown of the band Pegasus Warning, and a surprise guest TBA. Over a three month period, like a hijacked episode of Sesame Street or a linguistically-challenged late night show, “Perchance” dedicates itself to the letter P by presenting a polyphony of people within its performative program.

 

NOVEMBER 21 — AMPLIFY

E.S.P. TV
The fourth of  6 programs with Robert Pietrusko. For this event, the artist transforms the broadcast studio into an oscillator. Six Microphones is a sound installation composed entirely of feedback. No sounds are generated, they are only amplified. The piece is an act of organized listening -- listening to the space, to the audience and to itself. 


This installation is a participatory and sound-based installation. There is no script as such. The audience is invited to move through the work to thereby interact with the work. We visualize sound by raising ohm through our equipment and screening on montiors. All monitors are used for the opening event this way. There is ongoing historic footage, past E.S.P. TV material, news, and a monitor as osciliscope. 

 

The show is produced for Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television (MNN), to be aired on Tuesday nights at 10PM on TW channel 67 . After airing, the episodes are posted online at storefrontnews.org.


DECEMBER

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

DECEMBER 11 — MERGE

Perchance: A Talk Show of P's

6-7pm
Prem Krishnamurthy

Episode II of "Perchance" features actress Parker Posey, who amongst countless film roles starred in 1995's Party Girl; Alexander Provan, editor of online magazine Triple Canopy and a participant in the 2014 Whitney Biennial; and Ksenya Samarskaya, a.k.a. 'Postrophe, who may or may not speak about letters such as Pe, Pi, and P. 

 

Hosted by Prem Krishnamurthy of Project Projects, Paper Monument, and P!, "Perchance" is a talk show with a single organizing principle: all guests' names (or pseudonyms) must start with the letter "P". 

 

Like a hijacked episode of Sesame Street or a linguistically-challenged late night show, “Perchance” dedicates itself to the letter P by presenting a polyphony of people within its performative program.

 

DECEMBER 17 — DISRUPT

E.S.P. TV

The fifth of  6 programs with Erica Magrey and Jennifer Juniper Stratford. Studio visitors will browse a selection of corporate model androids produced by I.M.Communications, programmed with business and leadership skills, assertiveness training, and a range of social and artistic talents to ensure a well-rounded personality. Multiple levels of space, thought, and being bleed into one another in order to express, distress, and undress the I.M. Communications ethos. 

 

The show is produced for Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television (MNN), to be aired on Tuesday nights at 10PM. After airing, the episodes are posted online at storefrontnews.org.

 

JANUARY

JANUARY 7 — UNVEIL

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Box? 

Michael Young

Performance 2: Fear of Tone is a drawing performance in three parts by Michael Young exploring the changing conditions of architecture’s technological mediation. In this performance, “Fear of Tone,” the line is lost into the groundless matrix of illuminated pixels formerly known as painting.

 

JANUARY 7 — UNVEIL

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Box? 

Michael Young

For Performance 3: Fear of Reproduction, fear of reproduction of the aesthetic act of cut and paste collage is revealed to be the source of serial repetitions of copy/paste in smaller and smaller, tighter and tighter, bit by bit mash-ups.

 

JANUARY 15 — QUESTION

Perchance: A Talk Show of P's
Prem Krishnamurthy

Episode III of "Perchance" features gallerist Penny Pilkington, pioneer of the East Village art scene; Phillip Niemeyer, polymath designer, lawyer, and music video director; and Rob Giampietro a.k.a. Professor Pizza, who will help us to understand the constitution and contemporary contours of this paradigmatically palatable provender. 

 

Hosted by Prem Krishnamurthy of Project Projects, Paper Monument, and P!, "Perchance" is a talk show with a single organizing principle: all guests' names (or pseudonyms) must start with the letter "P". Like a hijacked episode of Sesame Street or a linguistically-challenged late night show, “Perchance” dedicates itself to the letter P by presenting a polyphony of people within its performative program.

E.S.P. TV

7:00 - 8:00pm ESPTV Gameshow (at the Storefront TV Studio)

Custom prizes for house and home, built by artist Clive Murphy, will be awarded to the winning contestant. With the right answer, they just might take home the object of their Crate and Barrel dreams.

 

The show is produced for Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television (MNN), to be aired on Tuesday nights at 10PM. After airing, the episodes are posted online at storefrontnews.org.
