LACMA presents TV On Film, a new exhibition that opened on October 8. Television, as both a term and a commodity, is undergoing transformation. Recalling the ubiquitous television set as our daily image provider seems almost quaint, even a bit nostalgic in 2016. Television now registers as benign in light of the constant hover, hum, and hook-up of the internet. Today, our visual feed—of both still and moving imagery—comes from multiple screens in multiple dimensions. Featuring 10 works by renowned photographers, this installation considers the territory of TV as worthy subject, conflicting message, and potent medium.
