BroadCast is a collection of unique and peculiar works of art created for the public, strangers, and the unsuspecting. The word “broadcast” was originally used to describe the method of scattering seeds into a field or garden, and here, the artists scatter their art objects, entering the public realm with a spirit of generosity, risk, or anonymity.

The artworks exhibited include a range of formats that are distributed in a variety of manners--some pieces surreptitiously placed in the environment, others actively seeking an audience, whether ethereal, physical, electronic, or performed.

BroadCast 2016, organized by Kim Abeles and Ken Marchionno for Keystone Gallery in Los Angeles, includes a large collection of artworks from a series of exhibitions curated by Abeles in the 1990s. This iteration of BroadCast includes over fifty artists, and takes into account advances in technology, including virtual solutions and social media, as well as recent tangible expressions.

The curators are also creating a data base of broadcasted art. The website will be accessible during the Keystone Gallery exhibition and will be ongoing.

Examples of BroadCast art in the exhibition include Karen Atkinson’s talking parking meters, Dana Fritz’s tagged tumbleweeds that are returned to the desert; and, Michael Yamamoto's pogs and José Lozano's paper-doll, Victorina (career woman, mother and masked wrestler) were distributed through kids. New media works include Dennis Keeley’s Facebook postings; Alan Hiroshi Nakagawa’s Ear Meal; the app, In Still Life 2001-2010, by John Baldessari; and, Elaine McMillion Sheldon. Artworks as interventions include Barbie Liberation Organization, Freewaves, and xtine Burrough’s On The Web.
