In 1967, a team of young painters, poets, musicians, and electrical engineers took up residence in San Francisco television station KQED-TV and began work on some of the earliest video art, rethinking what video was and could be in the process. Kris Paulsen, assistant professor in Ohio State’s Department of History of Art, explores the creation of the landmark National Center for Experiments in Television (NCET), focusing attention on an influential but long-neglected body of work.

Cosponsored with Ohio State’s Film Studies Program.
