Once More For The Very First Time // ACRE TV at Comfort Station

Once Again For The Very First Time

Rebroadcast, rerun, replay, reflect. The repeat is a TV standard; an opportunity for viewers to catch up on a show they missed or indulge in a show they love again and again. With this in mind, and to celebrate our first anniversary, ACRE TV is revisiting some of our favorite shows from the past year with a screening at Comfort Station. Once More For The Very First Time offers a chance to return to the stream, featuring works from each season of ACRE TV presented in front of a live gallery audience.

ACRE TV is an artist-made livestreaming tele-vision network that features live and canned video, performances, durational works, and experimental broadcasts. ACRE TV was born out of the collaborative spirit of ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions). 

This program is presented in conjunction with Comfort Station's current show A Gathering. 

A Gathering brings four 2014 ACRE residents together in the month of March to display new works created in the aftermath of their ACRE residency: Kittisak Chontong, Jason Friedes, Jaclyn Jacunski, and Celeste Neuhaus. These artists, none of whom were in residence at the same time, represent the wide scope of ACRE residents, each exploring vastly different topics through diverse material and performative practices. 

Whenever works are juxtaposed in a space, connections and threads begin to loosely form and un-form. Artist Lorraine Leeson once put forth that a definition of art might be the "gathering of ideas, people, or things together and holding them together for awhile." This act of gathering can be found within many of the works presented in this exhibition. However, rather than establishing "gathering" as the applied theme though, it serves more as an invitation: as a visitor, you are invited to gather with these artists and art works, taking them each in individually and weaving your own series of connections or disconnections.

All screenings are free.
