Antiprism will explore a series of unexplained broadcasts that interrupted the programming of numerous international television stations between 1986 and 2009. Purportedly sent from a spacecraft at the outer reaches of our galaxy, these transmissions have created an international controversy, evoking strong opinions from experts in many fields. Throughout April, evidence in the form of a multimedia installation with video projections, surround-sound audio, theatrical performances, and laser-etched acrylic panels will be displayed in the Kimball Gallery. For the first time ever, public dialogue will be possible and people will have the opportunity to develop informed opinions about this mysterious set of phenomena.
The Artist Studio program is a part of FAMSF’s Cultural Encounters initiative designed to attract new and diverse audiences to the Museums and provide exposure to emerging artists. This program is made possible with major support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services/Museums for America. Supported in part by Genuus.
