GOING PUBLIC

Art Space Gallery at Fresno City College, October 10 – November 21, 2019

Recorded at Fresno City College and at CMAC (Community Media Access Collaborative) in downtown Fresno, GOING PUBLIC is a DIY public access TV show, directed by artist and filmmaker Liz Roberts and made with the participation of FCC students and members of the Fresno artist community. Episodic and accumulative, GOING PUBLIC builds over time as content is added, re edited, and looped. Thinking about issues of access, representation, local public conversations, and documentary, through the lens of a community college gallery.

Episode One: PILOT includes music and an interview with local punk band Squid Ink, and student generated content in the form of art tutorials and skits. Episode Two: How To includes a paint color mixing tutorial with Fresno based artist Kezia Harrell and her brother, Chaim Harrell, and more student skits and tutorials.

Episode One: PILOT screened at 6pm on October 10 at the Art Space Gallery, with simultaneous broadcast through Community Media Access Collaborative (Comcast Xfinity Channel 93 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 in the Fresno area). Episode Two screened on November 7th.
