24 Hours of Contemporary Video

**If you are having trouble with the stream, please check your internet connection and try refreshing your browser. Here are some additional trouble-shooting tips.**

Net [ ] Work is a 24-hour online exhibition of contemporary video art by international artists from within and beyond our community of residents. This 24-hour video art marathon will be live-streamed around the world from 12am PT until 11:59pm PT November 13, 2016, from 18th Street’s campus in Santa Monica, California, to commemorate the end of our month-long #WeTheArtists crowdfunding effort.

We have three days days left in our crowdfunding campaign. If you are enjoying this online exhibition, please donate a few bucks now – whatever it is worth to you – and help us reach our goal!

About the Artists

Because of the international scope of our community, 18th Street is experimenting with ways to program direct artistic experiences for remote participants through our social media networks. In that spirit, we have invited 21 international artists to participate in Net [ ] Work, playing on a term that has come to be synonymous with contemporary society, and with the systems that enable its reach. To network, or to build a network, is to bring people together, and that is our intention with this program. For 24 hours, we will exhibit works on video from contemporary artists representing a broad range of countries around the globe. The program will be structured so that viewers can tune in at any time throughout the 24 period, from anywhere, irrespective of time zone or how long they watch. Each time a viewer tunes in, she will likely encounter a different artwork. At the end of the 24-hour exhibition, the works will be taken offline.
