Richard and Barbara Basch Gallery presents an ART Network Exhibition
Interactive exhibition to showcase video content of award-winning student-operated television network
Sarasota, FL – Opening June 20th, an exhibition celebrating the Ringling College of Art and Design All Ringling Television Network (ART Network) will showcase the achievements of this five year-old student-driven organization, while also introducing visitors to the various elements of video production.
This exhibition will demonstrate ART Network’s mission of offering immersive experiences while demystifying the process of digital content creation. Visitors will have the opportunity to view first-hand the driving energy of this groundbreaking creative network while also actively taking on the role of director, actor, and cinematographer through a number of activities.
For those wishing to enjoy the videos created by ART Network, the exhibition will offer multiple screens and iPads with access to various short-form programs. There will be a sitting area for long-form work works, including the award-winning documentary ART (R)evolution, which premiered on ABC-7 in 2014. Visitors will also be invited to create their own content in one of two ways, either using the Periscope app to stream their thoughts and impressions live from the Basch Gallery or working with a green screen station to temporarily take on roles in front of and behind the camera.
ART Network has captured an array of student interviews with notable visitors to Sarasota, including Rory Kennedy, Cheryl Hines, Roman Coppola, Sissy Spacek and Kevin Smith. The student teams have also documented campus life and student events and drawn out stories from prominent artists, scientists, and thinkers such as Theo Wujcik and Bernice Davis on topics ranging from Japanese printmaking to cooking, and progressive approaches to cancer.
Expanding into the Sarasota community, ART Network has created commercials for Make a Difference Day, Biolife’s Woundseal, and SunCoast Blood Bank and produced programs for Jewish Family and Children’s Services, Sarasota Opera, IMG Academy, the Sarasota Film Festival, and Ringling Underground. ART Network students have ventured outside the city to support Ringling College projects such as “Mapping a Site” in Belgium, trips to Art Basel in Miami, and mentoring children and young adults with Down Syndrome onboard the Buddy Cruise, a 5-day conference and supportive networking event on a cruise ship.
The exhibition will include posters and ephemera highlighting ART Network’s achievements and awards. Throughout the gallery, flat screen monitors will showcase the milestones of this extraordinary campus institution over the last five years. In addition, a picture album and “guestbook” will encourage visitors to leave written and visual responses to the exhibition.
