TEST CITY: ANALOG TO DIGITAL TV will be on view in the Art Gallery at the Cultural Arts Building Oct. 3 through Nov. 8. Test City is a group exhibition exploring the transition from analog to digital television. An opening reception will be held from 5:30 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3, with a performance by artist Juan Jose Griego at 6 p.m. Both the performance and reception are free and open to the public. 

Wilmington was the first test city in the transition from analog to digital television and first in the nation to go completely digital on September 8, 2008. This invitational exhibition curated by Courtney Johnson features works responding to the digital transition in a variety of mediums including sculptures, video, drawings and interactive media. Featured artists include Simon Greenberg, Juan Jose Griego, Jeremiah Jenkins, Burt Ritchie, Phillip Stearns, Pilvi Takala and Samson Young.
Finnish artist Pilvi Takala’s Real Snow White video has been featured in Amsterdam, Istanbul, and most recently at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The nine-minute video addresses the absurd logic of real versus fake fictional characters at the Disneyland theme park in Paris. Cuban-American artist Juan Jose Griego’s interactive video monitors and performance encourage audience participation as does Hong Kong-based Samson Young’s interactive touch screens. Burt Ritchie’s television line drawings render recognizable clips from television shows while simultaneously merging into a tangle of lines as the time-based medium is translated into a 2-dimensional representation. Jeremiah Jenkins’ manipulated television, radio and floppy disk sculptures combine the technological and the natural world into objects at once nostalgic and bizarre. New York-based Simon Greenberg’s VHS videotape contrasts the high-definition videographics and sound compositions by electronic media artist Phillip Stearns. 
THE ART GALLERY at the CULTURAL ARTS BUILDING is located on the ground floor of the Cultural Arts Building, near the building’s main entrance on the corner of Randall Parkway and Reynolds Drive on the University of North Carolina Wilmington campus. To access either from South College Road or Racine Drive, take a left as you enter the campus area onto Randall Drive. Visitor parking is directly in front of the Box Office entrance to the building.
