TRANSMISSIONS is an online platform that commissions artists to share their work within a classic DIY TV show format. It is initiated by Anne Duffau, Tai Shani and Hana Noorali and supported by a number of UK art institutions and commercially stable artists.
Artquest supported season 1 of TRANSMISSIONS (23 April – 28 May 2020) along with DACS, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Oscar Murillo Studio, Somerset House Studios and Wysing Arts Centre. Season 1 ran as six weekly episodes screening on Twitch. Each artist included in TRANSMISSIONS is paid a fee in return for their contribution.
Many artists have had exhibitions, opportunities and fees cancelled for the foreseeable future. In response to this TRANSMISSIONS is an online platform to commission artists to share their work within a classic DIY TV show format.
