The West Hollywood Years

Collection | 1990-1994

Video still from a live multimedia performance “Bird of Passage” by Zina Bethune and Michael J. Masucci, 1990


In 1992, as a subspace of EZTV, Michael J. Masucci and Patric Prince founded CyberSpace Gallery with the help of artists Victor Acevedo, ia Kamandalu, Michael Wright, intern Lisa Tripp, and others. CyberSpace Gallery was among the world’s first galleries dedicated to digital art and in 1995, launched one of the very first websites exhibiting digital art.
Founder John Dorr died of AIDS complications in 1993. Masucci then became Director and named ia Kamandalu as Vice-President. Over time, and in partnership with Kate Johnson, they transitioned the space, allowing for its survival and the preservation of its early history. EZTV left West Hollywood and operated out of three subsequent spaces whilst participating in several joint locations with other groups.
Now having existed longer without its founder John Dorr, EZTV relocated to the 18th Street Arts Center - far longer than at any of its previous locations.
