Curators Introduction 

Hello.
What is VLTV?

Drawing from the public access tv stations of 1970’s America and the current experimental live art scene of Birmingham and beyond,  VLTV allows artists to make mistakes and play with the notion of what live art is and how it can exist virtually.

Last year I looked at the format for Vivid Live and decided to change things up. I wanted to make live art more accessible to those who can’t make it to a physical gallery space while providing artists with the necessary support to experiment and  make work for different platforms.

Then Covid 19 hit and the world changed.

Suddenly every gallery was streaming everything they could find. Which kind of meant I needed to rethink VLTV for this new landscape. The focus shifted from the audience who are now dripping in glorious art and moved to supporting the artists. Ensuring that they are able to continue making art as they emerge from this global catastrophe.

I’m delighted to bring you glimpses of these wonderful artists’ practices.

Stay safe,

Alex Billingham
