OTV | Open Television is a non-profit platform for intersectional television. We incubate, distribute, and exhibit artists that commercial television networks and art institutions do not develop consistently: artists who identify with multiple identities marginalized by the market and society. OTV experiments with alternative ways to develop, produce, and exhibit art and television. Our programs center artistic expression, intersectionality, Chicago and digital networking.
Shervin and Victoria experience a number of mini-adventures smattered with elements of the surreal, often blurring the lines themselves using mind-altering drugs. This lends a fresh, satirical, and often perplexing way for the viewer to vicariously experience tinder dates, pet ownership, Xboxs, exercise, sex, technology, and social media. All against the backdrop of Chicago, a city that shares characteristics with the main characters: inviting, yet frightening, beautiful, yet raw, teeming with the unexpected.
