ACRE TV presents: Psychedelicatessen, Sept 1 – Oct 31, 2014

ACRE TV presents: Psychedelicatessen. poster by Kera MacKenzie & Andrew Mausert-Mooney & Matt Mancini

ACRE TV is an artist-made livestreaming tele-vision network featuring live and canned videos, performances, durational works, and experimental broadcasts.  It is run in the collaborative spirit of ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions). ACRE TV programs a series of two-month continuous streams based on a theme.

This season ACRE TV is pleased to present:

September 1 – October 31, 2014

A cornucopia of psychedelia, a delicate spread of the finest things, delicious and heady, sumptuous and somatic. Food films but also film foods. Cooking shows where the food narrates and the chefs are chevre. A mayonnaise malaise, half Erowid and half Martha Stewart, some things you need a half pound of, others much less.

If television delivers the people, ACRE TV delivers the Soylent Green, thinly sliced and mostly eyes and ears and brains. I stream, you stream, we all stream for mustard paintings and ketchup pairings. I’ve never seen the Food Network, but I assume it’s like this. A perfect time to watch weekly shows, to hear field recordings of fields, to tell the whole world about being a waiter for Godot.

Psychedelicatessen includes live performances by John KilduffThad KellstadtLeslie RogersEllen NielsenAnna IaleggioMark McCloughanJoseph Herring and Amy Ruddick; episodic shows by ElsewhereTara Nelson and Michael Wawzenek; and video works by Alpha Girls (Alma Alloro & Jennifer Chan)Blair BoginJennifer ChanJerstin CrosbyTimothy DMitchell DoseClint EnnsGWC InvestigatorsHooliganshipThad KellstadtJohn KilduffJodie MackJesse MalmedHani MoustafaEllen NielsenBen PoppLeslie RogersAndrew RosinskiBen RussellJoshua Gen SolondzToby TatumMichael WawzenekSean Whiteman and The Whiteman Brothers.
