EZTV: Video Transfer


ONE Gallery, West Hollywood
March 15 – June 1, 2014
EZTV: Video Transfer explores the history of EZTV, a pioneering video space founded in West Hollywood in 1979. Perhaps the country’s first micro-cinema exclusively dedicated to video, EZTV was both a screening venue and production house. Through the exhibition, accompanying screenings, and public discussions, EZTV: Video Transfer looks to excavate how the space supported queer video, as well as more generally, its involvement with alternative video practices, performance, art, and community-building.
