TV MUSEUM PART 1 SCREENING

Dates: 17 Apr - 26 Apr

Show Time: 11.00am - 8.00pm

Part one of a four-part series of lectures and screenings curated by writer, lecturer and researcher Maeve Connolly. This screening of  TVTV Looks at the Oscars, 1976  will run continuously throughout the day and will be accompanied by a lecture by Connolly on 23 April.

TV Museum: The Mini-Series is a four-part lecture and screening programme created by Maeve Connolly. Structured around various characters, plotlines and situations drawn from Connolly’s forthcoming book TV Museum, the series explores and extends ideas central to her ongoing research on contemporary art and media. Unfolding over a year, the programme will configure these ideas as a parallel narrative, intersecting with TV Museum’s analysis of art and television.
