Greenpoint Open Studios ran this weekend throughout the north end of Brooklyn. One artistic project that opened its space to the public was E.S.P. TV, an ongoing project where artists make television shows that are mixed and edited live.

The shows are broadcast both on Manhattan Public Access an online. According to the project’s website: “Our mission is threefold: to expand on the idea of an artist collaboration and the ‘live’ experience, to preserve television as a relevant outlet for artistic practice, and to develop new video and performance works with local artists.” 

E.S.P. TV has run a season each year since 2011, recording over 70 episodes.

We spoke to Scott Kiernan, the project’s co-creative director along with Victoria Keddie, at the studio. He suggested interested viewers check out Episode #64 (sponsored by the Reykjayvik Arts Council) and Episode #48 (from Manhattan’s New Museum).
