ARTRADIO
Cornerhouse’s temporary radio station, broadcasting in FM and online

Gallery 1 of Cornerhouse will be transformed into the ARTRADIO production and broadcasting studio. Open to visitors, this studio will form the base for a dynamic array of live residency broadcasts, events, pre-recorded and archive programmes, as well as invited feeds, guest slots and submitted content.

ARTRADIO will reach into people’s homes, offices, cars – wherever they listen to the radio, and offer gallery visitors a chance to listen whilst also making transparent the usually hidden mechanisms of radio, one of the most avidly followed and accessible forms of media. Resident artists will shape the core programming of the broadcast schedule, connecting along the way with other artists, projects, local audiences, and young people.

Resident artists will shape the core programming of the broadcast schedule, connecting along the way with other artists, projects, local audiences, and young people. These artists will appropriate conventional radio formats whilst also subverting these very models by employing their own unorthodox approaches. A dedicated young person’s broadcast ‘take over’ is planned from Thu 26 July – Thu 9 August. Members of LiveWire, Cornerhouse’s programme for 14 – 19 year olds, will work with a host of other invited young people, to lead and work in collaboration with residency artists and Unity Radio.fm

Residencies:
Reboot.fm - Diana McCarty & Pit Schultz (Berlin)
Open Music Archive - Eileen Simpson & Ben White (London)
David Blandy (London) 

In Gallery 2, ARTRADIO+ will compliment the aural material of Gallery 1 with a visual space, incorporating posters, flyers, comics and video programmes, plus a shared, live performance arena to be produced and programmed by the three residencies and young people as part of wider broadcasting activities.
