Living Room Light Exchange

San Francisco Bay Area, US

The Living Room Light Exchange is a monthly salon dedicated to new media forms and dialogues amongst artists and cultural theorists. Each month, three members of The Exchange present recent projects and works in progress; discussion - in couches, drinks in hand - follows. 

Art is research. The Exchange commits itself to looking critically at new media art as a form in and of itself, rather than as a spectacle. We are a collection of cultural producers; every member of The Exchange engages in artistic practice or contemporary scholarship.

The Living Room Light Exchange is held the third Tuesday of every month at 7pm in rotating living rooms across the Bay Area. Living room doors open at 7pm,  talks begin at 7:30pm, and open discussion at 8:30pm. 

The Light Exchance was foubded by Liat Berdugo and Elia Vargas, and currently curated byLiat Berdugo and Tanya Gayer. It's New York chapter is currently curated by Sarah Burke, Nicholas O’Brien, and Myriah Towner.

Support for the Living Room Light Exchange has been provided by Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Grant Program, the Clorox Foundation, The Zellerbach Family Foundation, the Center for Cultural Innovation, and is fiscally sponsored by the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. The main source of our financial support comes from you, our community.
