Artist's Markings in the TV Landscape

by Renee Baert

Prime Time Video, 1984, pp. 21- 27

Saskatoon: Mendel Art Gallery, 1984

Renee Baert writes on the significance of "Prime Time Video" within the context of Canadian Video art. The show financed artists and gave them access to professional equipment. Video had never been funded in this way, in the past artists were always forced to make the most with the little they had. The second half of the article is sectioned as an Appendix where, Baert writes gives a breif history of the history of the broadcasting of Video Art in Canada. He lists the key artists and television broadcasts who shaped the genre in its early days.
