Outside EZTV for opening of LA-SIGGRAPH ART, 1990

Throughout these decades, EZTV has advocated for and been early exemplars for a number of artistic communities and traditions, ranging from its early days in West Hollywood, on through its transition years in Hollywood (including 5 years housed inside LACE) an since 2000, as an organization-in-residence at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica. Always a champion for the under-represented and disenfranchised, EZTV curated as well as produced, and offered low-cost services to those locked-out of the traditional institutions of either the Fine Art world or Hollywood.

Projects for which EZTV’s current artists have been principal collaborators have won a number of awards, including the Emmy and Cine Golden Eagle, and have premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and the Museum of Modern Art. It has received tributes by the American Film Institute, SIGGRAPH, UCLA, and for its 35th anniversary, was honored with a 3-month long retrospective of screenings, panel discussions and exhibitions at USC’s ONE Archives & Museum (which now houses much of its early work as part of their permanent collection).

During this 40th Anniversary year, EZTV’s rich and diverse history will be the subject of a 4 part research series of seminars and screenings at the Kandinsky Library, at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of Los Angeles-based arts movement, known as EZTV.
