Beginning June 1, a multidimensional art exhibit entitled “Tune In” will be arriving in The Plaza at Peachtree Center! Comprised of six (6) stacked vintage television screens, the display will feature 30-second video clips from some of history’s most significant broadcast segments from the 1950s and 1960s, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Apollo 11’s moon landing and live music performances from James Brown and The Beatles. Culled from over 100 hours of television and news broadcasts, the 12 minute segment will run on a 24/7 loop. The exhibit seeks to start a conversation with its viewers about diversity and inclusion in America, and to examine our history with media technology.
“Tune In” is currently on a 10-city tour around the country and has been featured at the Jimmy Stewart Museum in Indiana, Pennsylvania , Martha’s Vineyard Museum, Akron Art Museum and Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte, North Carolina. At each stop, Lazes and filmmaker Seth Koch will also interview creative individuals and local artists for their upcoming documentary “Artists in Quarantine: American Creativity During the 2020 Pandemic,” which will debut on Netflix in 2022.
