Why isn't art as popular as music (yet)? Elizabeth Markevitch's reaction to this question was very direct and clear: a TV channel that brings art into people's homes, all around the world. A pioneer art project interdependent with the highest technology. ikonoTV is the first television channel broadcasting art and only art 24/7 on HD (via SmartTV, satellite and web streaming). Since 2010, this unique project brings to an increasing number of households on-air curated exhibitions of art films from the most diverse cultures, by working in close collaboration with more than 1000 international artists and over 200 collections, image archives, and the world's leading art institutions. By showing art free of any additional commentary and sound, ikonoTV allows an international audience to experience the moving image as a pure form of narration, and reinforces the idea of art as a truly universal and timeless language.
