Explaining pictures to dead air

Item is a video recording of the tele-performance Explaining Pictures to Dead Air by Clive Robertson. The performance was a live cablecast specifically created for the Fifth Network/Cinquiéme Réseau conference held in Toronto, Ontario from September 7-10, 1978. The title is a reference to a performance piece How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare presented by the German artist Joseph Beuys on November 26, 1965 at the Galerie Schmela in Düsseldorf. Robertson's performance was written specifically for the Fifth Network conference and asked the question: Would network news be any different if it was read by Joseph Beuys? The performance ends with a pre-recorded conversation between Robertson and Beuys on the topic of artists using television.

Past future split attention, Performer audience sequence

Item is a U-matic videocassette that contains two video works created by Dan Graham in 1976 : Past future split attention (17 min., 25 sec.) and Performer / audience / sequence (45 min. 11 sec.). The first work was performed in London's Lisson Gallery in March 1972. The performance is a project of restructuring space and time, where two people are in the same space, and while one predicts the other person's behaviour, the other recalls the other person's past behaviour. The second work was performed at Artist's Space, New York in January 1976. In this performance, Graham stands in front of a mirror, facing the audience, and tells the audience his movements and their meanings. Videocassette was dubbed to Betacam SP by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Videocassettes are accompanied by four pages explaining the video works. Centre for Art Tapes screened the work in 1979.

The black and white tapes

Item consists of three video works created by John Orentlicher and Tom Sherman created between 1978 and 1979. The video works are a series titled The black and white tapes and include : 2 + 1 +1, Because it's my image - Watching the leatherman, and She and she. Videos were screened by Centre for Art Tapes in 1980. The Centre for Art Tapes described the videos as the following: 2 + 1 + 1: a nude woman lies on a bed, stroking a dog that lies beside her. Voiceover is a description of sexual imagery repeated several times, first by a man, then a woman, then together. Because it's My Image - Watching the Leatherman: a black man gets dressed up in his leather gear, S &M Style. We hear him describing his garments, but the main audio is a voice that talks about television, voyeurism. She and She: a woman strips, gets into some kind of odd metal breastplate and codpiece, she skips the metal pieces. During this segment, a female voice talks about sharing space, the audience trusting the character and vice versa.
