Multiplexer started as an art space Downtown in the City of Las Vegas. The exhibits focused on the potential of video as a medium, and away from the over explored, web-based sensationalism, corporate media and hollywood film industry. The space exhibits work that crosses the threshold from visual language to relevant and poignant explorations in a wide variety of subjects and motifs.
Multiplexer also focuses on the detritus and artifacts of video technology and its relationships to changes and shifts in history, from analog to digital, broadcasts, video art and home videos. From the anthropological and scientific, to the exploratory and experimental; all genres and categories of video work are considered for exhibition.
The art space was located in downtown Las Vegas two blocks from the 12 million LED screen Viva Vision, on Fremont Street, both a technological inspiration and an unsettling reminder of the power media wields.
