Top Value Television (TVTV) Commissaire/Curator: Eli Kerr
from September 8th 2022 to October 22nd 2022
Alternative Convention: Top Value Television's Four More Years

Opening on Thursday, September 8, 2022, 5PM - 9PM

OPTICA A Centre for Contemporary Art is pleased to present the exhibition Alternative Convention: Top Value Television’s Four More Years, organized by Canadian curator Eli Kerr. The exhibition focuses on a single video-artifact titled Four More Years, produced by the 1970s video collective Top Value Television (TVTV). TVTV was comprised of journalists, activists, artists and members of other video groups, including Raindance Corporation, Videofreex, and Ant Farm. For these young people—the first postwar generation to grow up with television—new tools such as the portable Sony Portapak camera opened up new possibilities for experimentation that also promised political and emancipatory potential.
