The title of this exhibition is a quote by Samuel L. Jackson’s Pulp Fiction character referring to the invention of television. This exhibition of Baltimore Media Artists collects experimental explorations in artist-made media, rarely, if ever, represented on national television. Compiled on four separate screens (or channels: Performance, Animation, Narrative, and Non-Narrative), “ Invention” imagines specialty TV stations of the future, were artists given greater access to a landscape currently propelled by commercials and sitcoms.
