Curate a Program

ExTV hosts web programs and helps facilitate public programming of moving image work and accepts curatorial proposals from undergraduate and graduate SAIC students and faculty.

Step 1 – Options for programming proposals:

1. ExTV Presents, ExTV’s monthly web programs:   Exhibitions can be arranged thematically (for example, a screening of SAIC new animation) or by artist (solo exhibitions of works from one artist).
2. Screening events: in the Flaxman Screening Room (MacLean Room 1307), the Neiman Center, the Columbus Auditorium, a classroom, etc.
3. Campus monitors: Select work from the Video Data Bank, the Flaxman archive, student/staff work, etc.  (You must have the permission from the ARTIST to show work online.) This has been popular for faculty who have expressed interest in curating a program using their video project assignments.

In general, permission must be granted from any participating artists or organizations prior to screening. To propose any programming, simply email the information requested below to


1. Your Name, class status (student/faculty), and department (if one is declared).
2. Desired date or run of program.
3. Desired venue.
4. Proposal Statement (no more than 100 words).
5. List of works you wish to include in the program.

Step 2 – Approval

If accepted, you will be asked to write a 500 word curatorial statement. All works screened in your program will need to be submitted under “On-Campus Screening/Installation Event” option through our general submission form, unless stated otherwise. For ExTV-hosted events, we will book the venue for your program, provide technical assistance, and promote it to the SAIC community.
