Episodes of TRANSMISSIONS are broadcast at 9pm on Wednesdays and 9am on Fridays. Episodes may contain mature content.
Our collective isolation highlights that all forms of community are now more important than ever, and it is vital that we find mechanisms to support each other through this precarious time. In the landscape that we have found ourselves in, it is clear that many artists, writers and thinkers have had exhibitions, opportunities and subsequent fees cancelled for the foreseeable future. In response to this, we have established TRANSMISSIONS an online platform that commissions artists to share their work within a classic DIY TV show format.
Season 2 of TRANSMISSIONS will run as six weekly episodes screening every Thursday at 9 pm BST and repeated on Fridays at 9 am BST on Twitch. The 1st episode will air on the 25th of June 2020. The last episode of the season will be curated by the founders of TRANSMISISONS Anne Duffau, Hana Noorali and Tai Shani. Each artist included in TRANSMISSIONS is paid a fee in return for their contribution. In some instances, artists have waived their fees in order to donate the money to a charity of their choice. With a sense of community, all the money used to pay artists in season 2 has been kindly donated by established art institutions and commercially stable artists.
TRANSMISSIONS is supported by BALTIC, Chisenhale, DACS & ArtQuest, Netwerk Aalst, Somerset House Studios and Wysing Arts Centre.
