For the past four years, Coaxial Arts Foundation has been dedicated to the exhibition and promotion of experimental video, audio, and performance art. From their unassuming storefront location south of Downtown, the nonprofit arts space offers residencies, workshops, and a robust programming schedule of screenings, concerts, and talks, showcasing everything from underground animation, to ambient-noise musicians, to the latest VR artworks.

This Sunday, Coaxial is celebrating its fourth anniversary with an evening of works by previous artists-in-residence. Featured artists include JJ Stratford, founder of “mutant” analog video lab Telefantasy Studios; Suzy Poling, whose multifaceted practice spans painting, photography, sound, film, and fiber art; prolific devotee of the abject Jonnie Prey; and underground punk, noise, and performance veteran GX Jupitter-Larsen. All donations raised go to support programming at this vital DIY space.
