webKCHUNG_Alt_Cur_Doc_11

By creating a virtual bridge our intention is to create localized access to KCHUNG resources, content, and knowledge base, as well as to explore the expansive and diverse possibilities for what community-based radio can be. The gallery space acted as a virtual outpost and information center, in which visitors could listen and watch live and archived programming, gain technical knowledge, view archival ephemera from KCHUNG’s collection, and visit the station’s Los Angeles studios directly via a live two-way video feed.

As part of the exhibition KCHUNG hosted a special day-long broadcast from its Los Angeles studio of programming created in Philadelphia.

During October, Vox Populi was pleased to host four alternative arts organizations: Threewalls (Chicago), Possible Press (Atlanta), The Luminary (St. Louis), and KCHUNG (Los Angeles). Vox Populi dedicated its entire exhibition space to the work of these four organizations in October as part of the Philadelphia-wide project Alternative Currencies, which gathered independent contemporary arts groups from around the country to share their innovative modes of working. Across the city, Grizzly Grizzly presented INCA (Detroit/Seattle), Mount Airy Contemporary presented The Suburban (Oak Park/Milwaukee), Rebekah Templeton presented PLUG Projects (Kansas City), and Traction Company presented Galería Perdida (Brooklyn/Chilchota, Mexico).

Alternative Currencies was conceived by Grizzly Grizzly Gallery in partnership with The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design for the exhibition Strange Currencies: Art & Action in Mexico City, 1990-2000, previously on view at The Galleries September 19 – December 12, 2015 and was presented in collaboration with Vox Populi, Mount Airy Contemporary, Rebekah Templeton, Traction Company.
