The GINA Show was a cable access variety show, produced by Vancouver artist John Anderson, that was broadcast on Vancouver Cable 10 from 1978-1981. It was a collaborative experimental platform for the public screening of performance and media art, as well as a talk show. The show featured artist’s videos, interviews, early digital art, performances, poetry readings, footage of local events, and performances by local punk and new wave bands. It promoted the local cultural scene by broadcasting clips and excepts by artists who were working with PUMPS, Video Inn, the Western Front and the Vancouver Art Gallery.
This video is an intro sequence from season 3 of the show. Music from the “Talking Volume” EP by Warsaw of Vancouver.
