Leading Icelandic contemporary art organisation Kling & Bang are running an ambitious programme to spread video art over the TV airwaves. Entitled “Night Transmission: Electronic Intimacy,” the programme will run nightly on Iceland’s national TV service, RÚV, from approximately 01:30 until 07:00.
The work on show is by a selection of 38 international artists curated by Margot Norton, Associate Curator at the New Museum, New York. The programme varies from established figures such as Chris Burden (famous for shooting a handgun at a plane in flight as an artwork, amongst other firearm related antics) and present-day Icelandic and international artists including Camille Henrot, Ragnar Kjartansson and Laure Prouvost.
For international viewers, it’s possible to livestream the work online, as well as watching it later on RÚV’s convenient catchup service.
The full list of artists taking part is: Dagrún Aðalsteinsdóttir; Helena Aðalsteinsdóttir; Rosa Aiello; Uri Aran; Peggy Ahwesh; Sadie Benning; Chris Burden; Xavier Cha; Keren Cytter; Zackary Drucker; Mariah Garnett; Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir; Steinunn Gunnlaugsdóttir; Elín Hansdóttir; Camille Henrot; Emma Heiðarsdóttir; Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir; Kolbeinn Hugi Höskuldsson; Loji Höskuldsson; Selma Hreggviðsdóttir; Stanya Kahn; Anna K.E.; Ragnar Kjartansson; Kristján Loðmfjörð; Sara Magenheimer; Florian Meisenberg; Nicole Miller; Rosalind Nashashibi; Habby Osk; Agnieszka Polska; Elizabeth Price; Laure Prouvost; Rachel Rose; Aïda Ruilova; Carolee Schneemann; Mary Simpson; Cally Spooner; and Erika Vogt.
