The TV Show

With its fast-moving, visually appealing imagery, television or the ‘idiot box’, commanded our attention for several hours each day. No longer the dominant mode of entertainment due to the rapidly growing digital age, ‘The TV Show’ casts nostalgia, performance and genre in key roles to relay how television has influenced society. ‘The TV Show’ also reflects on its relationship with the emergence of new media. Artists include Liam Colgan, Sarah Contos, Amala Groom, Sara Morawetz, Liam O’Brien, Philjames, JD Reforma and Giselle Stanborough.
