October 10 - November 21, 2019
Art Space Gallery at Fresno City College
Join us in the gallery on Thursday, October 10 at 6:00PM for the screening of Going Public - Episode 1: Pilot
Recorded at Fresno City College and at CMAC (Community Media Access Collaborative) in downtown Fresno, Going Public is a DIY public access TV show, made with the participation of FCC students and members of the Fresno artist community. Episode One: Pilot includes music and an interview with local punk band Squid ink, and student generated content in the form of art tutorials and skits.
Episodic and accumulative, Going Public is an exhibition building over time as content is added, re edited, and looped. Uncut footage is projected on to the gallery walls and will migrate into future episodes. We're thinking about issues of access, representation, local public conversations, and documentary, through the lens of a community college gallery.
Ways to watch:
Episode One: Pilot will screen at 6pm on October 10 and October 17 through Community Media Access Collaborative (Comcast Xfinity Channel 93 and At&T U-Verse Channel 99 in the Fresno area). Episode Two will screen during November.
