The Experimental Television Center, whose mission is to support the creation of work using new electronic media technologies, has announced the upcoming release of "ETC: Experimental Television Center 1969-2009," a five-DVD set presenting the work of over 100 artists who have worked in the Center's Residency Program during the last 40 years.
The DVD collection offers a look at the evolution of the unique artist-designed sound and image tools that are the hallmark of the Center's studio and provides a view into the constantly changing artistic processes and practices that have shaped the work over the years.
Professor Peter Rose has had his works in film, video, installation and performance exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally, including shows at the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Pompidou, the Philadelphia Museum and the Film Society of Lincoln Center. His work has won numerous awards of distinction at festivals around the world and has been the subject of a number of critical reviews in The New York Times, Art Forum, Millennium Film Journal and The Village Voice. He has had over 60 one-man exhibitions of his work, has lectured on his work widely, and is the recipient of several prestigious fellowships, including four from the National Endowment for the Arts, 11 from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and both Guggenheim and Pew Foundation Fellowships.
Adjunct Associate Professor John J. H. Phillips, whose interactive multimedia collaborative installations are exhibited worldwide, had two new videos screened this past summer: "A Simple Device" was shown at the Magmart Festival, Palazzo delle Arti, Naples, Italy, and "Control Panel" was shown as a featured surround-sound installation at the 8th Annual Art Stays Festival in Ptuj, Slovenia. In addition to his ETC residency, the National Endowment for the Arts recipient also received a composer residency at the Millay Colony in Austerlitz, N.Y.
Adjunct Professor Connie Coleman's work encompasses single-channel videotapes, sculptural multi-channel electronic installations, digital photography and electronic printmaking. As a video artist, Coleman has worked collaboratively with video artist Alan Powell for well over a decade. Their work has been presented in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally.
The Experimental Television Center has offered programs in support of the media arts for about 40 years, including an international residency program, grants to individuals and media organizations, and sponsorship assistance for independent media and film artists. Established in 1969 by Ralph Hocking at the State University of New York at Binghamton, in 1978 ETC relocated to Owego, N.Y, where it continues to operate today.
