The first ikono On Air Festival promo is online, and it won’t be the last! With all the participating artists still to be announced, we just though we’d give you a little taste of the ikono On Air Festival content in a series of clips we’ll be publishing frequently over the next few months.

These special promos will contain the original footage of some of our featured artists and will be visible on ikono’s homepage, blog and social networks. The final program will be available in September 2013 and you’d better get ready, as we already have hundreds of artists to present! Our festival will run from the 6th to the 29th of September 24/7 (!), so we recommend you to keep checking our website to discover our rich artist lineup with us.

And now, we can reveal the name of the artist of our very first promo: the footage belongs to the film “Landscape for Fire” by Anthony McCall, who shot it in 1972.

Confirmed: the ikono On Air Festival finally breaks ground!

Posted June 21st, 2013

Festival

Here at ikono we are extremely excited to announce that this September will see the first ever art festival to be exclusively broadcasted on TV in more than 30 countries and on live stream globally online in HD 24/7!

Between the 6th and the 29th of September, the ikono On Air Festival will celebrate and share all of ikono’s favorite artists and ikono’s most beautiful video clips with its global audience.

The festival will combine contemporary non-narrative films and other time-based art practices from the last few decades with a retrospective from the ikono collection of video clips focusing on art from antiquity to the present.

With the festival, ikono will present a thorough dialogue between the moving image and the classic idea of an artwork, challenging ideas of social spaces, everyday life and cultural communication.

Bear with us until we can start announcing the participating artists & curators, the festival categories, the broadcasting partners and much more!

Start the ball rolling by sharing this news and please keep checking our blog and social media sites for further updates on the very first ikono On Air Festival.
