Kate Johnson Memorial Media Lab (KJML) / EZTV
Organization In Residence
18th Street Campus
The Kate Johnson Memorial Media Lab (KJML) is the current evolution of EZTV, a pioneering LA-based media arts space, whose roots date back 41 years. KJML/EZTV fosters creative experimentation between the arts and the sciences, recognizing that neither would exist in its fullest form without the other. Over the years, in addition to its acclaimed artistic collaborations, it has also collaborated with scientists and technologists, including Fermilab, SIGGRAPH, the Finnish government, as well as many other leading thinkers and innovators. For artists at KJML/EZTV, continuous technological change is a given, and is welcomed for the continuing challenges as well as possibilities that new horizons present to creatives.
EZTV collaborates with artists and thinkers from around the world, as well as produces in-house original productions for television, live events, art galleries, and site-specific installations. In 2019, the Kandinsky Library at Centre Pompidou, Paris, presented four events highlighting EZTV’s diverse and complex history. Selected venues that have presented EZTV works include Lincoln Center; the Institute of Contemporary Art, London; PBS stations throughout the nation; Anthology Film Archives, NY; Wire Factory, Helsinki; and the Museum of Modern Art, NY.
