Paper Tiger Reads Paper Tiger Television
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the New York–based Paper Tiger Television collective combines art, activism, and analysis to create a new kind of TV journalism—irreverent, unpretentious, and fearlessly skewering the pieties of broadcast media.
In Paper Tiger Reads Paper Tiger Television, they turn the video cameras back on themselves, drawing from their incomparable archive to demonstrate how everyday people can take back the media and be creative with it. Wexner Center visitors may recall PTTV’s 1991 installation, Dream House, produced as part of their Wexner Center Residency Award, in the first year those awards were given. (app. 45 mins.)
