Video may have killed the radio star—but it also spawned its own art.
ONE’s EZTV Offers a Look at an Era When WeHo Was ‘World Capital of Video’ Art
“Micro-cinema” and production house EZTV, founded in West Hollywood in 1979, became “ground zero” for thinking about how to use video as an artistic medium, according to ONE Archives Gallery and Museum curator David Frantz. Frantz called the EZTV of the 1980s and 90s “a very eclectic kind of hotbed space.” EZTV was also a venue that screened video you wouldn’t see elsewhere. “These people were definitely pioneers in a lot of regards,” Fratz said.
ONE is showcasing this slice of WeHo history with the “EZTV: Video Transfer” exhibit at the ONE Archives Gallery & Museum, 626 North Robertson Blvd. at Melrose.
