today sees the opening of End Piece – an retrospective of the work of the Grandpa of video art, David Hall. The show will include a remaking of 1975 work 101 TV Sets – reworked as 1001 TV Sets (End Piece),  that sees 1001 cathode ray tube TV sets filling the huge gallery space. Each will be tuned into different analogue stations, playing a random chorus of electronic signals, which will be gradually reduced between 4 and 18 April to coincide with the final ever analogue television signals broadcast from London’s Crystal Palace.
