LET US TELL YOU WHAT WE HAVE FOR AUGUST
THE WRONG TV
180, The Wrong Tv is the result of a collaboration with the international digital art platform The Wrong, leading to an entirely new programming grid. Curated by David Quiles Guilló, a unique television experience is proposed, which gives way to irreverent works of the most diverse contemporary digital artists.
The project Nascentes crossed, for over a month, twenty artists from the music industry and visual arts for the creation of an installation that activated a certain point of the pedestrian path in the banks of river Lis. Each one of the artistic residencies was triggered by a get-together guided by a speaker coming from different areas of knowledge. Nascentes results in a 5-episode-series of artistic transdisciplinary residencies.
DRAMATIC AND MILD
A short essay on the importance of art which covers how visitors and even security guards act and think while enclosed in a small room with the painting 'Dramatic and Mild' by Vasiliy Kandinsky. Dramatic and Mild is a short film from Russia directed by Nastia Korkia.
EMPIRE OF LIGHT
We invite artists who use painting as a form of expression and challenge them to choose a painting that influences them and to explain why they chose it. After the analysis of a painting of their choice, each episode follows the journey through their artistic processes. The first season of the Canal180's original Empire of Light gathers a series of artists from Canal180’s local area, Porto, Portugal, featuring Vera Matias, Matías Romano Alemán, João Puig, and Teresa Arega.
HIGHLIGHTING WORLDWIDE CONTENT
MUSIC IS OUR RADAR
The only television channel in the world featuring music videos for an audience interested in new music.
Broadcasting a wide range of music sessions, from a bar in Alabama, We Have Signal to dj sets all over the world with Boiler Room. We’ve also partnered with Yours Truly and Red Bull Music Academy to feature films about the new music scenes.
Canal180 develops original content to provide insight on a new generation of music video directors, the DIRECTOR ID series. The series was developed as a partnership with Pitchfork, that also included the interview series, Entrevista.
A PLATFORM FOR NEW ARTISTS
Canal180 spotlights the roots of contemporary creativity by highlighting the thoughts and ideas of artists worldwide. From a series produced by international publishing house Gestalten, to the architecture world of ArchDaily, digital interview magazine Avant/Garde Diaries, the community of visual storytellers of The Creator Class or profiling Chilean visual artists in Gabinete.
The daily broadcast of Canal180 originals 180 Meets and MAG offer a glimpse of the network of artists we build over the year.
HOME OF SHORT FILMS
Nowadays the increasing conformity of mainstream films creates a bland cinematic landscape. Short form was always seen as a source of a more experimental approach to filmmaking.
Over the years, Canal180 broadcasted the work of filmmakers, such as Mike Mills, Sean Dunne or Vincent Moon and highlighted young filmmakers, whose films featured in international film festivals, such as Venice, Berlin or Sundance.
REALITY GIVES CINEMA POWER
Having this in mind, Canal180 always had a special place for the films that question societies pivotal topics. The body of work of director Andreas Johnsen, in films like Inside Outside or Good Copy Bad Copy, was an incredible starting point and offered a different point of view. Topics like the depiction of the life cycles of cities, in films like Atlanta From the Ashes or St. Louis Rises, or the micro societies within a city in The Tables and the discussion about The Future of Cities, offer a platform for alternative ideas about the urban landscape.
Delving into more actual topics like the refugee crisis in Welcome to Canada, Eyes of Exodus, making portraits of youth in Room For Change or Swindon, or taking the audience through the night of the US Presidential elections in Election Night, helps us create an identity based on an authentic point of view of young independent new voices.
