Artists Space is pleased to present TV Sandino, a program of television shows independently produced video tapes from Nicaragua. This timely program, curated by Annie Goldson and Carlos Pavam of Xchange TV, provides a unique and fascinating glimpse at a broadcast television system that still retains an experimental aspect.
Annie Goldson, formerly a journalist in New Zealand, is currently an independent video producer and teacher living in New York City. Her most recent production, Las Mujeres del Mercado, was made in collaboration with a group of Nicaraguan women.
Carlos Pavam has worked as a journalist for Brazillian radio and is currently producing his own videotape on the movement to provide sanctuary for Salvadoran and Guatemalan refugees.
Xchange TV is a New York based group of media workers who distribute Nicaraguan-made television in the U.S.
