Conceived as a “live action arts magazine,” Antenna::Signals is a variety show-styled event with each “issue” featuring a cross discipline spread of 6-8 local artists, writers, musicians, scientists, activists and scholars whose practices relate thematically. The live magazine drops 4 times each year, accompanied by the release of two-dimensional print zines and now an online documentary series. Explore the archive below.
