Description

February 16, 2018 - May 5, 2018

Broadcast across the Bay Area in 1969, the 'Dilexi Series' is a collection of radical television programs created by a host of artists including Julian Beck, Walter De Maria, Kenneth Dewey, Robert Frank, Anna Halprin, Phil Makanna, Robert Nelson, Yvonne Rainer, Terry Riley and Arlo Acton, Edwin Schlossberg, Andy Warhol, William Wiley, and Frank Zappa.

Commissioned by Dilexi Gallery director Jim Newman and KQED-9 TV, the 'Dilexi Series' was visually original, thematically diverse, and subversive programming made with complete disregard for "good" TV.

Co-presented with the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and curated by Steve Seid. Showing daily in MFA's media room.

Also at the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, 'Stories: Philip-Lorca diCorcia & Constance DeJong.' 'Stories' features photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia's 'A Storybook Life' (1978-1999) and writer and performer Constance DeJong's 'Radios' (2015-2017). Curated by Kevin Moore.
