Featuring 10 works by renowned photographers, our “TV on Film” installation considers the territory of TV as worthy subject, conflicting message, and potent medium. Television, as both a term and a commodity, is undergoing transformation. Recalling the ubiquitous television set as our daily image provider seems almost quaint, even a bit nostalgic in 2016. Television now registers as benign in light of the constant hover, hum, and hook-up of the internet. Today, our visual feed—of both still and moving imagery—comes from multiple screens in multiple dimensions. [Tina Barney, Jill and the T.V., 1989, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Ralph M.
